"Lawrence" back at the Aero Saturday, August 3 -- in 70mm

Yes, this time the Aero is running a 70mm print of  David Lean's "Lawrence of Arabia" (Columbia, 1962) derived from the recent restoration.  It plays at the Aero in Santa Monica on Saturday, August 3rd at 7:30 pm.  The film is preceded by an introduction from Jeremy Arnold, author of "'Lawrence of Arabia,' the 50th Anniversary." See the Aero's events calendar for more offerings or check out the page for this August 3 screening.

The wonderful photo is of the premiere of the original roadshow engagement at the now lost Warner Beverly Hills. It's by George Mann and appears (in larger format) in the Flicker album of Brad Smith, Mann's son. It's part of a set picturing theatre marquees all over the country. Many feature Mann's dance act, Barto & Mann on the marquee.
