Last week, Cinemark Tinseltown kicked off their fall series of classic films with the John Huston film The African Queen. It is an epic adventure set during the Great War. Of course, maybe epic isn't the right word when we take into account today's special film screening: Lawrence of Arabia.
Featuring sweeping scenes of desert climes, award-winning direction by David Lean, and a run time of three and a half ours, Lawrence of Arabia stars Peter O'Toole as the title character, a British officer during the first World War. Stationed in Cairo, he is assigned Arabia to investigate the revolt against the Turks. While there, he struggles with the ideas of violence and loyalty, and in the process becomes a hero.
Lawrence of Arabia plays twice today at Tinseltown, at 2:00 and 7:00. Tinseltown is located at 4400 Towne Center Drive, in the Springhurst shopping center. Further theater information can be found at the Tinseltown website.
