Roger Ebert once said of his DVD copy of Lawrence of Arabia: "it crouches inside its box like a tall man in a low room." More than nearly any other film that carelessly self-applies the word "epic," David Lean's masterpiece of bravery and madness demands to be seen in the cinema. The film is a celebration of awe-inspiring sights captured in the crisp beauty of 70mm. 3D films look bruised and anemic compared to images of the sun rising in the desert or the mad siege of the city of Aqaba, where each billowing grain of sand and rippling heat wave is rendered in impeccable detail. And the magisterial Egyptian Theatre in the perfect venue to revisit -- or discover -- this singular film.

Egyptian Theatre says…

This sweeping epic of Arab infighting and British colonialism is as timely as ever, and as beautiful. In his first feature, Peter O'Toole stars in director David Lean's masterpiece, lensed to perfection by Freddie Young, set to Maurice Jarre's majestic score. The amazing cast includes Omar Sharif (in his first major English-speaking role), Anthony Quinn, Jack HAwkins, Cladue Rains and Alec Guinness. Made to be seen on the big screen!
