Now I know why.

As great as BD is, it can't hold a candle to the 70mm format. I have seen a 70mm print before, but on a very small screen. Even then, the movie was mesmerizing. Considering how David Lean loves to make movies larger than life through amazing stories and photography, I can only imagine how impactful the movie would have been on a huge screen. In fact I am planning on going to the Czech Republic in the next year or so as there's a large 70mm festival there that shows Lawrence, 2001, Grand Prix, etc. Do you know of any 70mm festivals in the US, or Canada? I'm in MN so the Canadian border isn't that far away for me.
Check out, they have schedules of 70mm showing all around the world.

By the way where are you in Minnesota? I am about 90 minutes from the Canadian border.
