Backlot Chapter Outing: Lawrence of Arabia

L to R: Kim, Dina, Caroline, Chris, Kim, Suzanne, Kami

On Sunday, September 1 the Raleigh/Cary TCM Backlot Chapter gathered to see the TCM Big Screen Classics presentation of Lawrence of Arabia, winner of seven Academy Awards, including 1962 Best Picture.

Chapter members had to hit the concession stands for sustenance during the 4 hour and 5 minute epic. But it was well worth it to see such a visually spectacular film on the big screen.

Afterwards, we gathered for a brief post-movie chat at the theater, discussing such topics as where the movie was made and its central character of T.E. Lawrence. Definitely a Chapter movie outing well worth the time investment.
