One of the most popular and influential films in the history of cinema returns to the silver screen. Presented by NCMÂ® Fathom Events and Sony Pictures Entertainment, the restoration of the Director's Cut of the film was overseen by Grover Crisp, Sony Pictures Entertainment Executive Vice President Asset Management, Film Restoration & Digital Mastering and conducted with the latest digital imaging technology.

Finally, the film went through a 4K color grading and re-mastering process at Colorworks Sony Pictures Entertainments' digital intermediate facility. This special event features an exclusive introduction from Lawrence of Arabia star and Academy AwardÂ® nominee Omar Sharif, newsreel footage of the New York premiere, as well as footage of King Hussein visiting the film set. In addition, Academy AwardÂ® winning Director Martin Scorsese will talk about the over-arching themes of Lawrence of Arabia and its influence on other iconic films in a recent, exclusive never-before-seen interview.
