Lawrence of Arabia 70mm Exclusive Engagement

The American Cinematheque debuts a brand new print of LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (1962) this month and has exclusive rights to exhibit the Best Picture Academy Award Winner in the Los Angeles region. LAWRENCE OF ARABIA is one of the all-time favorites of American Cinematheque audiences and has been shown several times a year since the organization re-opened the Egyptian Theatre in December 1998. The first of exclusive engagement will take place December 15-30, 2017 at the Egyptian Theatre.

"When we completed the digital restoration of Lawrence of Arabia in 2012, we also wanted to preserve on film all the hard work that went into the image restoration. So, we produced a new 65mm negative primarily for preservation purposes. In the intervening time, renewed interest in 70mm print exhibition has generated many requests for new 70mm prints of Lawrence and we decided that this would be a good time to honor those requests. The new 70mm prints are really meant for those audiences who truly appreciate the art and technology of film production and exhibition, explains Grover Crisp, Executive Vice President, Asset Management, Film Restoration & Digital Mastering, Sony Studios.

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA received 9 Oscar® nominations and was the winner of 7 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture (Sam Spiegel, producer), Best Director (David Lean), Best Cinematography (Fred A. Young), Best Editing (Anne Coates), Best Score (Maurice Jarre), Best Art Direction (John Box, John Stahl & Set Decoration, Dario Simoni) and Best Sound (Shepperton Studio Sound Department, John Cox, Sound Director).

Grover Crisp, , Executive Vice President, Asset Management, Film Restoration & Digital Mastering, Sony Studios, will introduce the December 15th show and author/film historian Jeremy Arnold will introduce the December 17 & 30 shows.
