Marking Its 80th Anniversary, the Epic Movie Milestone Gone With the Wind Sweeps Back Into Cinemas For Two Days Only: February 28 and March 3

  • WHAT: 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.
