"Gone with the Wind" Returning to Theaters Ahead of Home Video Release for 75th Anniversary

Posted on Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014 3:20 PM by Scott Jentsch

Event GraphicIf you were there when Gone with the Wind opened in theaters in 1939, you have a chance to relive that experience in a few weeks when TCM Presents Gone with the Wind comes to select theaters around the country. If you have never seen this classic movie on the big screen, this is your opportunity to enjoy this 10-time Academy Award winner the way it was meant to be seen! This event marks the first time since 1947 that it will be shown in its original 1.37:1 aspect ratio.

Rhett Butler and Scarlet O'Hara will grace more than 650 movie theater screens across the country on Sunday, September 28, 2014 and Wednesday, October 1, 2014. Turner Classic Movies host and film historian Robert Osborne will provide a special introduction. If you are not familiar with Osborne, he provides informative and classy introductions for movies on the cable/satellite network.

75 years is a long time ago, but some movies stand the test of time. This one captured the Best Picture honor back in the day, and in addition to the 10 total statues it took home (including Cinematography, Leading and Supporting Actresses, and Director), there were an additional five categories in which it was nominated. The American Film Institute lists it as the #4 greatest American movie of all time, so if you haven't seen it in a while (or ever), you owe it to yourself to check it out if you can!

To see where it's playing and when, check out the Showtimes pages for September 28th and October 1st, and make your plans today!
