Best Night at the Movies 

Lawrence of Arabia at The Belcourt

As the Oscar buzz is set to begin in earnest, we're looking back on a pretty good year for movies. If I didn't know better, I'd be rooting for an epic tale of imperialism, hubris, prejudice and cruelty that takes place in a Middle East divided against itself along tribal fault lines. Sounds positively contemporary doesn't it? If you saw the brand-new, spotless print of David Lean's classic at The Belcourt you'd be forgiven for thinking you were watching the best movie of the year and not a decades-old gem. It was the crowning jewel in a year of stellar programming at The Little Theater That Does. JOE NOLAN
