“Gone With the Wind’ celebrates its 80th Anniversary, returns to cinemas February 28, March 1

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.

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 Leigh as 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.

Event courtesy of Fathom Events and Warner Bros. Showtimes will take place on Thursday, February 28, 2019 – 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. (local time) and Sunday, March 3, 2019 – 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. (local time).
Tickets for “Gone With the Wind” can be purchased at www.FathomEvents.com or participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in hundreds of select movie theaters through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
