GONE WITH THE WIND TO RETURN TO THEATERS

The MGM classic Gone with the Wind will be returning to theaters later this month for a 75th birthday celebration hosted by Warner Bros., whose corporate parent, Time Warner Inc., acquired the MGM film library when it merged with Turner Broadcasting in 1995. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment said that the film, which has reportedly been seen by more people than any other movie in history, will be screened in 650 select movie theaters nationwide, on September 28 and October 1 by Fathom Events, the company that beams live events to movie theaters via satellite. The screening coincides with the release of a new “collector’s edition” of the classic starring Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable. In announcing the screening, Jeff Baker of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment said that the company is “very selective” about re-releasing classic films in theaters “and this is certainly one that warrants the limited re-release. Deservedly, 75 years later, it remains the domestic box-office king at nearly $1.7 billion [adjusted for inflation].”
