Lawerence of Arabia back in theaters

 

      Announced back in August the film “Lawrence of Arabia” was going to be restored in 4K for its upcoming Blu-ray release set for November 13th. But this Thursday October 4th at 1pm and 7pm local time “Lawrence of Arabia” will be played in theaters nationwide(see article here). The film is presented by Sony Pictures Entertainment and NCM Fathom Events, the feature will also contain an exclusive intro by Omar Sharif, news reel footage of the premiere and footage of King Hussein visiting the film set in Aqaba.

My Take:

Im going to see it and you should too. This film almost cleaned house at the 35th academy awards. It won 7 Oscars and won for Best Picture, Director, Art Direction, Cinematography, Original Score, Film Editing, and Sound.  It depicts Lawrence’s experiences during the first Great War, in particular his attacks on Aqaba and Damascus. You see his emotional struggle with violence, personal identity, and divided allegiance between Britain army and his newfound comrades within the Arabian desert tribes. Not to mention the film has been restored in 4K, if you don’t know what that means there are two trailers below. One is the original and the other in 4K, you’ll see the difference. For those who are interested in seeing the classic film you can get tickets by going to www.FathomEvents.com and look to find which of the 630 movie theaters will be playing the movie closest to you.
