Have you ever seen it? I haven't! It's showing in its entirety on the big screen, complete with an intermission, as part of a series of refurbished classics. This is the 50th Anniversary, so they're showing at a few locations around the city. We'll be catching this at the Century Theatre at the Westfield Mall - 835 Market St, SF, between 4th and 5th - at the Powell St BART Station.
Storyline copied from IMDb:
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.
The movie is at 7pm. If you'd like to join me for dinner beforehand, we can meet at Super Duper Burgers at the Metreon at 6pm - 783 Mission St at 4th.
