The most visually stunning of all the big-screen epics, director David Lean's 1962 masterpiece Lawrence of Arabia also tells a huge story with impeccable style and grace. It transports viewers to an exotic time and place, and connects the rousing adventure tales of early Hollywood with the social and psychological realism of modern movies. Lawrence has been painstakingly restored in the last two years, and will get a one-day national run in theaters Thursday, Oct. 4, including at the AMC Elmwood Palace 20 in Harahan and the AMC Westbank Palace 16 in Harvey, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. The screening will begin with an introduction featuring Omar Sharif and Martin Scorsese. — KEN KORMAN
