Becket Back on the Big Screen

There are 30 newly restored prints of Becket (1964) in theatres for a limited re-release.

An historical costume drama of the grandest order, “Becket” is the true story of the friendship between King Henry II (Peter O'Toole) and Thomas à Becket (Richard Burton), a royal courtier and confidant whom Henry appoints as Archbishop of Canterbury.

More info can be found here: Becket - Official Re-Release Site.

Unfortunately, they don't list theatres showing the film, so check local listings.
