The British Film Institute will re-release David Lean’s romantic classic Doctor Zhivago, starring the late Omar Sharif alongside Julie Christie, in U.K. theaters on Nov. 27.
In celebration of the film’s 50th anniversary, it will screen in a new 4K digitally restored version.
First released in 1965, Doctor Zhivago won five Oscars at the 1966 Academy Awards but missed out on the Best Picture honor, losing to The Sound of Music.
Doctor Zhivago will be one of the cornerstone releases for Love, the BFI’s October-December program designed to rekindle “the U.K.’s passion for film and television’s most enduring love stories.”
The BFI’s re-release of Doctor Zhivago continues the organization’s collaboration with Warner Bros., which has also re-released such iconic titles as Blade Runner: The Final Cut, 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Shining in British cinemas.
