Summer in 70mm at TIFF Bell Lightbox, July 28-Aug 17

Summer in 70mm

After our popular 2010 holiday season of three classics—Jacques Tati’s Playtime, David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia and Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey—screened in 70mm, we present another season of widescreen spectacles (including a return engagement of Lean’s great desert adventure), each screening daily for week-long engagements.

Films in Summer in 70mm

Lawrence of Arabia

David  Lean
Peter O’Toole became an instant star in David Lean’s sprawling adventure epic as the eccentric and inscrutable British officer who rallies the nomadic desert tribes against the Ottoman Turks during World War I.


Stanley Kubrick
Kirk Douglas gives a ferocious performance as the legendary gladiator who led a slave army against the forces of Imperial Rome in director Stanley Kubrick’s rousing and unusually intelligent sword-and-sandal epic.

West Side Story

Robert  Wise
The groundbreaking Leonard Bernstein-Stephen Sondheim Broadway musical—reimagining Romeo and Juliet as a turf war between rival New York street gangs—became one of the most lauded movie musicals of all time in this multiple Academy Award-winning film adaptation directed by Robert Wise and choreographer Jerome Robbins.
