French 1989 re-release poster.

The following is a reference / historical listing of the 70-millimeter presentations of
"Lawrence of Arabia" in North America during its Director’s Cut re-release.

The “Lawrence of Arabia” re-release was among three classic re-releases and eighteen confirmed first-run films released in 1989 with 70mm prints for selected engagements. The Sam Spiegel production and Columbia release was directed by David Lean and starred Peter O’Toole, Alec Guinness and Omar Sharif. (The Academy Award-winning film was originally released in 1962.)

The film’s 70mm prints featured full-frame imagery from 65mm photography (Super Panavision 70) and Six-Track Dolby Stereo SR audio.

Prior to release, the film re-premiered in New York at the Ziegfeld on February 4th; in Washington, DC at the Uptown on February 5th; and in Los Angeles at the Century Plaza on February 12th.

The duration of the engagements (measured in weeks) has for some entries been included in parenthesis following the cinema name.
