Time to be great again: Sony Pictures' Lawrence of Arabia is returning to select cinemas in a stunning new 70mm presentation.
Originally shot on Super Panavision 70, David Lean's multi-Oscar winning opus about the exploits of T.E. Lawrence in the Arab world during WWI is widely regarding as one of cinema's greatest epics; a monumental achievement famed for the scale and scope of its storytelling, its meticulous production design and powerful performances, and Maurice Jarre's impressive score.
This new 70mm presentation restores all of the film's big screen grandeur, returning Lawrence of Arabia to its original format and inviting audiences to experience its all-affecting magic as it was first intended.
One of the screen's grandest epics, this monumental story recounts the true life experiences of T.E. Lawrence, better known to the world as Lawrence of Arabia. A young, idealistic British officer in WWI, Lawrence (Peter O'Toole) is assigned to the camp of Prince Feisal (Alec Guinness), an Arab tribal chieftain and leader in a revolt against the Turks. In a series of brilliant tactical maneuvers, Lawrence leads fifty of Feisal's men in a tortured three week crossing of the Nefud Desert to attack the strategic Turkish held port of Aqaba. And following his successful raids against Turkish oops and trains, Lawrence's triumphant leadership and unyielding courage gain him nearly god-like status among his Arab brothers.
