Gone With the Wind Celebrates 80th Anniversary

The iconic 1939 film “Gone with the Wind” celebrates it’s 80th anniversary this year! In honor of this classic film, starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, Destin Commons will be playing it at their AMC Movie Theater on Thursday, Feb. 28th and Sunday, Mar. 3rd. Fans will enjoy getting to see Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara again on the big screen!

This “epic Civil War drama” focuses on Southern belle Scarlett O’Hara, following her life on a sprawling plantation during the Civil War and Reconstruction, along with her tangled love affairs with Ashley Wilkes (played by Leslie Howard) and Rhett Butler. The movie scooped up a handful of awards, including several Oscars for Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Film Editing, Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role, and a handful of other nominations!

Considered the highest grossing film of all time, Entertainment Weekly reported that the film has brought in the equivalent of $1.8 billion when adjusted for inflation during its 80-year span. Purchase advanced tickets here!
