The news topics don't allow posting, this is a reply to this thread on 'Lowry Digital Restores "The Robe"'.

There is a free screening at the Billy Wilder Theater in Los Angeles next month, I'm assuming it's the Lowry restored version although it doesn't say:

Monday November 24 2008, 7:30PM ( Free Admission )

@ the Billy Wilder Theater
THE ROBE
(1953) Directed by Henry Koster

20th Century Fox film preservationist, Schawn Belston, will introduce this restoration of the studio's first feature film in CinemaScope. Starring Richard Burton as a Roman tribune from a patrician family who works for Pontius Pilate, and based on a Lloyd C. Douglas novel, this reworking of the story of Christ's crucifixion focuses on the robe Jesus wore at the time of his death. Epic in scope (no pun intended), The Robe won Oscars for Best Art Direction and Costume Design, while Burton, cinematographer Leon Shamroy and producer Frank Ross were also nominated.
In person: Schawn Belston, Vice President of Asset Management & Film Preservation, 20th Century Fox.

The Robe has been restored by the Academy Film Archive and Twentieth Century Fox with funding provided by The Film Foundation.
Based on the novel by Lloyd C. Douglas. Producer: Frank Ross. Screenplay: Philip Dunne, Albert Maltz. Cinematographer: Leon Shamroy. Cast: Richard Burton, Jean Simmons, Victor Mature, Michael Rennie. 35mm, 135 min.
