Hey UK! LAWRENCE OF ARABIA 4K Restoration Comes To Cinemas

If you've read our own Jason Gorber's superb in-depth piece on The Master, discussing 70mm, 4k and the issues around shooting and projecting those formats, then you may be a little excited to hear that Sony's 2012 Lawrence of Arabia 4k restoration is coming to UK cinemas. 

It's a restoration of the 1988 Director's Cut (itself a restoration, with key scenes re-voiced and previously trimmed sections re-inserted) screening in 2K and 4K nationwide. In keeping with its original exhibition, the film will be screened in roadshow format with an overture, intermission, entr'acte and exit music. 

It really doesn't get much more epic than this, so pick your cinema and seat (and projectionist) carefully.

Lawrence of Arabia screens as part of the 56th BFI London Film Festival on 20th October 2012, and is at cinemas nationwide from 16th November through Park Circus.
Around the Internet:
  • I was lucky enough to be in Cannes for the premiere of this new restoration. It looks magnificent on the big screen. Thoroughly recommended.
