Lawrence of Arabia on 70mm at Filmhouse

A brand new 70mm print of of David Lean's magnificent epic - a real cinema treat at Filmhouse! During the First World War, a British officer succeeds in uniting the Arab tribes and goes to war against the occupying Turkish army.

Grand in every sense, Lawrence of Arabia is an example of an established

director full of confidence and ambition. Nearly four hours long, several years in the making, and complete with an interval and its own overture, the film aims for greatness and achieves it.

Peter O'Toole, then the new boy among international stars (including Alec Guinness as a shrewd Prince Feisal and Jack Hawkins as the calculating General Allenby) gives a wonderfully charismatic performance as the enigmatic Lawrence, and that other star of the film - the desert - is magnificently captured in all its immensity.
