Film # 67: Lawrence of Arabia: 70 mm (Aug 29)

Lawrence of Arabia

1962, 218 min.
Directed by David Lean

We are in the final days of this year's incredible Summer Film Fest, and it appears they have saved some of the best for last. I had talked to many who informed me that the 70mm screenings are their favorites from the previous years, and I'm beginning to agree with them. Seeing West Side Story in 70mm was an amazing experience, and tonight's was to be the litmus test. An epic like Lawrence of Arabia should look absolutely incredible in this format. Needless to say, expectations were very high for tonight's screening.

Full writeup of the films is a work in progress...
