Movieweb reports that the Golden Age of Hollywood classic, Gone with the Wind, will be returning to theaters in celebration of its 80th anniversary.
The recipient of ten Academy Awards (two of which were honorary) and earner of an inflation-adjusted $1.8 billion has garnered fans and acclaim for decades. Even before its release, the adaptation of the Pulitzer-Prize winning novel was one of the most anticipated movies of its time, especially with the production’s extensive “search for Scarlett.” Talent scout Katharine Brown searched the East Coast for an unknown actress and eventually cast Scarlett O’Hara to fill the role.

Gone With the Wind explores the depth of human passions with intensity as Scarlett O’Hara, the spoiled, manipulative daughter of a wealthy plantation owner, comes of age just in time to see the Civil War forever change her way of life and marriage.
The legendary film will be shown for two days on February 28th and March 3rd thanks to Warner Bros. and Fathom Events.
