The new digital restoration of David Lean’s epic will be presented in honor of the IU Cinema's 2nd anniversary - revisiting the digital version of its opening film from January 13, 2011.

In an age of small screens, seeing Lawrence of Arabia onscreen with full overture and intermission is a larger-than-life cinematic adventure. Arguably one of the best films ever made, Lean’s epic story depicts the life of T.E. Lawrence, the controversial and romanticized British officer who led an Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. The Arabian Desert, captured in Super Panavision 70, provides a majestic backdrop for Lawrence’s larger-than-life exploits. The film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, winning seven.
