Gone With the Wind returning to theaters for 80th anniversary
Frankly my dear, this is your chance to see Gone With the Wind on the big screen.
The 1939 epic, which received eight Oscars (plus two honorary Academy Awards), is coming back to theaters for its 80th anniversary courtesy of Warner Bros. and Fathom Events. The film will return to movie screens for two days only, on Thursday, Feb. 28 and Sunday, March 3, playing at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. both days at participating locations.
Set against the backdrop of the Civil War and Reconstruction, Gone With the Wind tells the story of Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh), a headstrong Southern Belle who will stop at nothing to win the man she loves, Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard), and preserve her beloved family plantation, Tara. Complications ensue in the form of Rhett Butler (Clark Gable), a cad with a secret heart of gold, who knows he and Scarlett are truly meant for each other.
With its iconic performances, lush backdrops, stunning costumes, and sweeping story (not to mention its storied production history including a nationwide search for Scarlett), Gone With the Wind remains one of the most beloved films of all time, raking in $1.8 billion over its 80 year history (domestic gross adjusted for inflation).
Tickets for the film’s theatrical return are available now at the Fathom Events website or at participating theater box offices.
Tomorrow may be another day, but you’ve only got two days to return to Tara on the big screen.
