Join us for the first in our brand new BEST OF BRITISH season, featuring three quintessentially British films made by and starring the best that Blighty has to offer.
The story of British officer T.E. Lawrence’s mission to aid the Arab tribes in their revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. Lawrence becomes a flamboyant, messianic figure in the cause of Arab unity but his psychological instability threatens to undermine his achievements.
WeWatchFilms: Bringing classic movies back to the big screen every month with #ClassicMovieMonday at Cineworld for people who love to share the experience.
Due to the length of the film, we’ve moved this screening to a Sunday to make sure it’s as accessible as possible to everyone who’d like to see this British epic back on the big screen. There will be no Big Movie Quiz this month.
“Lean and photographer Fred A. Young have combined their artistic talents in an evocation of the Arabian desert that makes it both terrifying and deeply moving in its lonely grandeur.” Kate Cameron, New York Daily News
“It has an epic hero whom it doesn’t hero-worship…[O’Toole] brings flawlessly to life the film’s vision of a flawed warrior who is corrupted by pride, soured by empty victories.” Alex Walker, Evening Standard
LAWRENCE OF ARABIA is rated PG. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
