Description: Team San Jose, working with the Stanford Theater Foundation, invites you to experience movies in Downtown’s historic gem, the California Theatre. In addition to experiencing a classic movie in a gorgeous venue, the fully restored Wurlitzer Organ will play each night before the main feature. This classic piece was once the main auditorium organ in the Fox Riverside Theater. Lawrence of Arabia (1962) – The story opens with the death of Lawrence in a motorcycle accident in London at the age of 47, and then flashbacks to recount his adventures. As a young intelligence officer in Cairo in 1916, he is given leave to investigate the progress of the Arab revolt against the Turks in World War I. In the desert, he organizes a guerrilla army and for two years leads the Arabs in harassing the Turks with desert raids, train-wrecking and camel attacks. Eventually, he leads his army northward and helps a British General destroy the power of the Ottoman Empire.
