LAWRENCE OF ARABIA Limited Engagement

Memorial Day is traditionally the kick-off for the summer movie season. While it's become a time when effects-driven blockbusters flood the multiplexes, we'll use the weekend to revisit a classic in which character and story are just as important as eye-popping visuals: David Lean's Oscar-winning LAWRENCE OF ARABIA.

Starring Peter O’Toole (in his first feature), this sweeping epic of Arab infighting and British colonialism is presented in a new 70mm print struck specifically for the American Cinematheque. Both in front of and behind the camera, virtually everyone is at the top of their game, including the woman who cut the film.

Among the most revered editors in film history, Anne V. Coates (1925–2018) had a 60+ year career that included work on such favorites as THE ELEPHANT MAN and the original MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS as well as LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, for which she won a Best Film Editing Oscar. Ms. Coates had been a guest at the Aero in 2016, and with this weekend engagement, we pay tribute to her.
