Experience the Visual Spectacle of the Epic Lawrence of Arabia as the Monumental Cinematic Achievement Continues the TCM Big Screen Classics Series on September 1 and 4

One of cinema’s most magnificent and visually stunning achievements, Lawrence of Arabia will return to movie theaters nationwide for two days only – a film made to be seen on the big screen will be presented by Fathom Events as part of the TCM Big Screen Classics series. Lawrence of Arabia will be presented digitally in 4K from a meticulous restoration that utilized 8K scans of the original 65mm negative; the picture was painstakingly restored to remove the damage, deterioration and fading the negative had experienced over 50 years.

Movie lovers can experience Lawrence of Arabia in its original 2.20:1 aspect ratio and in remastered 5.1 audio, along with the film’s sweeping original overture and intermission music by Maurice Jarre.

At once sophisticated and adventurous, literary and epic – and always strikingly visual – Lawrence of Arabia stars Peter O’Toole as T.E. Lawrence, the British soldier who unites the Arabic Empire to fight against the Turks. Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn and Omar Sharif co-star in the film directed by David Lean from a screenplay by Robert Bolt and Michael Wilson and produced by Sam Spiegel. Lawrence of Arabia received seven Academy Awards®, including Best Picture and Best Director. Adding to the thrill of this big-screen spectacle, TCM Primetime Host Ben Mankiewicz will provide commentary before and after the feature.

Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Sony Pictures presents Lawrence of Arabia on Sunday, September 1, 2019 – 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. and Wednesday, September 4, 2019 – 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. 

Tickets for Lawrence of Arabia can be purchased at www.FathomEvents.com or participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in more than 600 movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN).
