‘Lawrence of Arabia’ storms the big screen at Bainbridge Cinemas

The 1962 British epic historical drama “Lawrence of Arabia,” based on the life of T.E. Lawrence and directed by David Lean, will return to the big screen at Bainbridge Cinemas for a special revival screening.

The special showing, presented by Turner Classic Movies, is 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4.

The film depicts Lawrence’s experiences in the Ottoman Empire’s provinces of Hejaz and Greater Syria during World War I, in particular his attacks on Aqaba and Damascus and his involvement in the Arab National Council. It was nominated for 10 Oscars at the 35th Academy Awards in 1963 and won seven in total, including Best Picture and Best Director.

It also won the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture–Drama and the BAFTA Awards for Best Film and Outstanding British Film.

In the years since, it has been recognized as one of the greatest and most influential films in the history of cinema.

In 1999, the British Film Institute named the film the third-greatest British film of all time.

In 2004, it was voted the best British film of all time in a Sunday Telegraph poll of Britain’s leading filmmakers.

In 2007, the American Film Institute named it the seventh greatest American film on their 100 Years…100 Movies list.

The version to be shown is a digital print presented in 4K. Utilizing 8K scans of the 65mm original negative, the picture was reportedly “painstakingly restored, removing the damage, deterioration and fading it had experienced over 50 years.”

Accompanied by remastered 5.1 audio, the film is presented in its original 2.20 aspect ratio, along with the original overture and intermission.

Tickets, $12.50 each, are on sale at www.farawayentertainment.com.
