One of the most iconic of all films produced during the Golden Age of Hollywood, not to mention one of the most popular movies of all time, returns to the big screen to mark its 80th anniversary. Warner Bros. and Fathom Events present Gone With the Wind for two days only on at the end of February/beginning of March.
Recipient of 10 Academy Awards™ (eight competitive Oscars™ and two honorary awards), Gone With the Wind remains an epic undertaking - not to mention an epic drama. Its production is legendary, including a nationwide "search for Scarlett" and the eventual casting of one of Hollywood's most well-known screen couples: Vivien Leighas headstrong Scarlett O'Hara and Clark Gable as dashing Rhett Butler. Its original $3.9 million budget made it the second most-expensive movie up to that point - and 80 years after its release, Gone With the Wind remains one of the most iconic of all productions from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
With an inflation-adjusted domestic gross of $1.8 billion, Gone with the Wind has achieved a rarefied place in film history. Before its release, it was one of the most anticipated movies ever made, and ever since its release it has been the most popular movie ever made, with an inflation-adjusted domestic gross of more than $1.8 billion. Now, to mark the 80th anniversary of Gone With the Wind, Warner Bros. and Fathom Events are bringing the cinematic epic back to movie theaters across the U.S. for two days only: Thursday, February 28, and Sunday, March 3.
Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Olivia de Havilland, Leslie Howard and Hattie McDaniel star in this classic epic of the American South. On the eve of the American Civil War, rich, beautiful and self-centered Scarlett O'Hara (Leigh, in her Oscar-winning role) has everything she could want - except Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard). But as the war devastates the South, Scarlett discovers the strength within herself to protect her family and rebuild her life. Through everything, she longs for Ashley, seemingly unaware that she is already married to the man she really loves (Gable) - and who truly loves her - until she finally drives him away. Only then does Scarlett realizes what she has lost... and decides to win him back.
