Tomorrow night 5/15 the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science in LA will be showing a newly restored print of CLEOPATRA at their Samuel Goldwyn theater. Very Cool.

I'm assuming this is the Elizabeth Taylor one. If so...you lucky bastards.

From the American Cinemateche website (for the Aero Theatre):

Saturday, June 24 – 6:00 PM
Brand New Restored 70mm Print! CLEOPATRA, 1963, 20th Century Fox, 248 min. Cleopatra
(Elizabeth Taylor) at attempts to secure her power as Queen of Egypt by charming Julius
Caesar (Rex Harrison) and Mark Antony (Richard Burton) with whom she has a stormy love
affair, but Egypt is finally integrated into the Roman Empire. Directed and co-written by Joseph
L. Mankiewicz, this epic historical drama of Queen Cleopatra of Egypt with spectacular sets
and costumes has to be seen in 70mm in this latest restoration from 20th Century Fox.
Cleopatra's spectacular entry into Rome with her golden Sphinx pulled by thousands is a real
cinematic moment!!
