David Lean's 1962 blockbuster Lawrence of Arabia remains the first word in big-screen spectacle — which is why you should see it this weekend on a big screen. I saw it for the first time many years ago at the Belle Meade Theatre, and I've never forgotten that famous cut of blue-eyed devil Peter O'Toole blowing out a match, only to have the full screen suddenly irradiated with a blaze of Saharan sunlight. It screens once a day through Monday in a new 4K digital restoration. Let us know in the comments thread if you go, especially if you're seeing it for the first time.
