Hello Dayton! This week mainly focuses on new openings for the week. Opening the week of 09/28 there are some great new movies and special events.
Lawrence of Arabia has been digitally restored for its 50th anniversary and back for one day only. Originally released in 1962, directed by David Lean and starring Peter O’Toole, the film follows T. E. Lawrence during his experiences in Arabia in World War I. This highly literate historical epic covers the Allies’ mideastern campaign during World War I as seen through the eyes of the enigmatic Lawrence. After a prologue showing us Lawrence’s ultimate fate, we flash back to Cairo in 1917, when Lawrence gets transferred to Arabia and befriends Sherif Ali Ben El Kharish. He then gets caught up in helping the Arabs and leads his army northward and helps a British General destroy the power of the Ottoman Empire. The film received ten Academy Award nominations and seven Academy Awards! Showing on 10/4 at 1pm and 7pm.
