I saw Lawrence again yesterday, on the big screen. This film is rapidly moving up my favorites list. This viewing was amazing. I had a better theater experience than I had at the TCM viewing, where sounds from other theaters intruded and took me out of Arabia. This time, I could fully immerse in the majesty of this movie, and I had tears in my eyes at more than one moment. I swear the whole thing -- including intermission -- was not longer than two hours. The movie just flew by. It if it had been playing a second time, I would have stayed in my seat for the next showing, it was that good, and I wanted more so badly.
The good thing is this film is played fairly regularly on the big screen. This is one I definitely have no desire to see any other way except on the big screen.
Speaking of movie theaters, I saw this at a Phoenix Big Theater. You might want to google them and see if they have a theater near you. Lawrence was part of a classic film program where they show different classic movies every weekend. Not only that, but it is only $4.00 admission, and they gave a voucher for the concession stand (if you're the type who like popcorn/food at the movies). They also show operas (which is how I found them). It's a bit of a drive for me to this theater, but worth it for the programming.
