Lawrence of ArabiaPG

Directed by David Lean | UK | 1962 | 3h 48m | Starring Peter O’Toole, Alec Guinness, Omar Sharif, Anthony Quinn, Jack Hawkins

The story of British officer T.E. Lawrence’s mission to aid the Arab tribes in their revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. Lawrence becomes a flamboyant, messianic figure in the cause of Arab unity but his psychological instability threatens to undermine his achievements. Enriched by Maurice Jarre’s unforgettable score, a stellar cast, and breathtaking cinematography, David Lean’s Oscar-winning historical epic stands as one of the paramount achievements in cinematic history.

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
