A true movie milestone – “Gone with the Wind” was the biggest, most publicized, and best-remembered film of Hollywood’s Golden Age. This is the film that swept the Academy Awards during what has become known as the movies’ greatest year. The rocky romance of Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara has, for almost 70 years, held audiences in thrall. As critic Leonard Maltin has said, “If not the greatest movie ever made, “Gone with the Wind” is certainly one of the greatest examples of story-telling on film.” Starring Clark Gable, at his most handsome and devil-may-care, as Rhett and Vivien Leigh as the indomitable Scarlett, it also boasts one of the greatest assemblages of supporting players and character actors ever brought to the screen, as well as some of the most magnificent and epic scenes ever filmed. Shown as it was meant to be, on the BIG Colonial screen. Don’t miss it! (Bill Roth)
