Let's see the new digitally remastered version of the epic classic, Lawrence of Arabia
Yes, I know this is a last minute notice but I just found out about this from a member and it's only going to be playing for a few days.
Lawrence of Arabia won seven well deserved Academy awards ( including best picture) in 1962. Epic, even by today's CGI standards, the remastering of the original makes this classic now even more visually stunning.
Synopsis ( as if you didn't already know)
Lawrence of Arabia
An inordinately complex man who has been labeled everything from hero, to charlatan, to sadist, Thomas Edward Lawrence blazed his way to glory in the Arabian desert, then sought anonymity as a common soldier under an assumed name. The story opens with the death of Lawrence in a motorcycle accident in Dorset at the age of 46, then flashbacks to recount his adventures: as a young intelligence officer in Cairo in 1916, he is given leave to investigate the progress of the Arab revolt against the Turks in World War I. In the desert, he organizes a guerrilla army and--for two years--leads the Arabs in harassing the Turks with desert raids, train-wrecking and camel attacks. Eventually, he leads his army northward and helps a British General destroy the power of the Ottoman Empire.

Note: This is a long movie ( as epics often are. ). Three hours. You may want to plan your potty breaks accordingly.
If anyone wants to meet before the movie for a quick appetizer or adult beverage, let's plan on getting together at the XYZ Tavern, 6419 Detroit, about a half block away, at about 6:00. I'll try to get there at 5:30 to watch for everyone.
