Gone with the Wind

In honor of Vivien Leigh's 100 Birthday (Nov[masked]), the Strand Theater in Clinton is doing a special engagement of Gone with the Wind.  It's a long-ass movie (4 hours) set during the US Civil War.

The movie starts at 1:00 PM.  We'll meet outside the theater at 12:15 to find decent seats.  If you need to reach me, my cell phone number is[masked]-0455.

    What a great movie and wonderful venue. It was nice to meet members of the group that I hadn't previously met. Thanks David for putting this together

    What an interesting look at a part of our history...I understood it much better this time than when I tried to watch it decades ago. That Scarlett though: what a conniving, manipulative, thing she was. It was hard to feel sympathy for her tribulations.

    "So a 4 hour movie---an epic romantic saga"--I think this is the only time I sat thru the whole thing---along with good company, good cake, happy birthday, Scarlett!!!!!!!!

    This is definitely essential viewing for any cinephile. Also, I don't know what sort of a print they'll be using, but if it's anything like the Blu-ray that's out now, it's totally worth seeing on the big screen, 4 hour run time and all.

    I watched this for the first time with my wife last winter. She had seen it before, and didn't have that great of an impression of it then, but seeing it this time with a restored HD transfer in our home theater, she was riveted.

    In this way, this movie is very similar to Lawrence of Arabia and 2001: A Space Odyssey. A good film on its own, but seeing it on a big screen imparts an epic sense of scale that adds so much to the film. Perfect example of this is the scene Scarlett is walking through a street to the field hospital, and the camera pulls back, showing the street filled with the wounded.

    Anyway, long story short, if you haven't seen this on the big screen, it's worth taking the 4 hours to do so.

      I asked if they could get the 35mm and they said they werent positive. From a purely historical aspect I would love to see that.
