Lawrence of Arabia at The Palace

Lawrence of Arabia posterThe Palace Theater's classic film series continues tonight with #5 on the AFI list of greatest movies of all time, Lawrence of Arabia. Peter O'Toole (sigh) stars as T.E. Lawrence, the conflicted British military figure who struggles with violence but eventually leads the battle to destroy the Ottoman Empire.

The rest of the cast is a who's who of the finest film actors of the day: Jose Ferrer, Alec Guinness, Claude Rains, Omar Sharif -- and we're just getting started.

Thanks in part to the award-winning art direction -- and in part to Peter O'Toole (sigh) -- this film is gorgeous to look at. And it's widely viewed as the most influential on the film making industry. It won seven academy awards in 1963, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Score. We like it for Peter O'Toole (sigh).

As always, curtain is at 7 and admission is only $5.
