Lawrence of Arabia 50th Anniversary Event: Digitally Restored
One of the most popular and influential films in the history of cinema returns to the silver screen with Lawrence of Arabia 50th Anniversary Event: Digitally Restored on Thursday, October 4 at 7:00 PM local time, with special matinees in select theaters.
Presented by NCM® Fathom Events and Sony Pictures Entertainment, the restoration of the Director's Cut of the film was overseen by Grover Crisp, Sony Pictures Entertainment Executive Vice President Asset Management, Film Restoration & Digital Mastering and conducted with the latest digital imaging technology. The original 65mm camera negative was first scanned at 8K. The film then underwent a painstaking process of repairing and restoring problems inherent to the 50-year-old film elements. Finally, the film went through a 4K color grading and re-mastering process at Colorworks Sony Pictures Entertainments' digital intermediate facility.
This special event features an exclusive introduction from Lawrence of Arabia star and Academy Award® nominee Omar Sharif, newsreel footage of the New York premiere, as well as footage of King Hussein visiting the film set. In addition, Academy Award® winning Director Martin Scorsese will talk about the over-arching themes of Lawrence of Arabia and its influence on other iconic films in a recent, exclusive never-before-seen interview.
