The inaugural SLO Film Fest opened with this newly restored classic on November 4, 1993 at the Fremont Theatre. We are bringing it back as a tip of the hat to the history of our Festival and its penchant for great epics and classics.

“Starring Charleton Heston, Sophia Loren and a cast of thousands, this is the kind of super-spectacle they don’t make anymore, lovingly restored by Martin Scorsese. It’s a vast, teeming pageant, loaded with décor and furious action. History, romance, legendry, adventure, swash-buckling jousts, sword fights and grand battle scenes.” – LA Times Drama/Adventure. 184 min. USA/Italy.
