I’m seeing it Oct 2 at the Arclight Cinerama Dome. Really looking forward to it.
I’m going to see it this afternoon. I’m curious about how it projects and image quality. Last saw it in 2012 in a theater.
If you’re seeing it in 4k, you’ll be seeing the reconstructed negative.
Not sure if it was 4K or not but El Lawrence looked and sounded very good at my theater in Northern Virginia. Very happy with the presentation. I sat in the third row.
I watched Lawrence of Arabia via Fathom Events at a Regal location earlier. Some issues I had with their presentation: they did not open up the matting on the screen for the widescreen aspect ratio so I had to go out to the lobby to tell one of the workers. But then the projection itself looked a little murky and the right side of the movie was notably pinker than the left! Kinda reminiscent of that old linen bound DVD release with the purple skies, before the Robert A. Harns Superbit release with the corrected colors.
Lawrence Of Arabia Pink by Ray H posted Sep 4, 2019 at 7:44 PM
I still enjoyed it, and the pink image was less bothersome when they get to Wadi Rum, but I got my tickets for this probably back in December and requested off from work months ago so I could see it, so it's a bit of a letdown. Still, should've figured considering the quality of movie theater projection these days. It's like they don't even bother unless you're seeing something in IMAX or Dolby Cinema. If anything, once I realized this wasn't going to be some godsent cinema-going experience, I relaxed and even got a popcorn and soda at the intermission - and I never get concessions. Just means this 4K UHD release can't come soon enough.
I didn’t see any of those artifacts at my showing.
Considering the extensive restoration from 2012 and that the 4K iTunes copy looks terrific, I'm pretty sure it had to do with the theater's equipment.
I attended a viewing this afternoon, as well. I was one of only three people in the audience for the Fathom event in Livonia, Michigan. Anyway, it was my first time seeing this on a big screen, and I really enjoyed the experience.
As an admirer of Lawrence of Arabia since I first viewed at the Criterion Theater in Times Square in its initial run, I have always tried to see it whenever it appears on the wide screen. Having viewed it today as part of the Fathom events series, it is once again a marvel. Sincere appreciation to Robert Harris for his restoration accomplishment in 1989.
Searching for Sherlock -
That must be a projector in serious need of recalibration / alignment. I can see how you chose different but I could not have helped it and would have walked out and demanded my money back.
It is quite ridiculous that one should suffer through such a presentation in this day and age, very bad grades for both lack of showmanship of the staff and the projection equipment.
Excellent analysis. I never spent time tracking the use of the compass, that was a delight to discover. (Though I tend to see it as symbolic of a man losing is way--"who are you?")
What terrible picture quailty I would have asked for my money back.
I thought only the original 70mm prints had gone pink.
This Tyler (Knudsen) does a whole bunch of terrific videos. Very professional and informative. Everyone here should check out his web site.
Here are Mr. Knudsen´s comparison between the well scene as scripted and its final form in the film
Also, an analysis of the map room scene, not by Mr. Knudsen, but full of good observations:
Interestingly, about 20% of the scene was gone by mid-January 1963
