From the Golden Age of Hollywood, Gone With The Wind remains the ultimate romantic epic and an unmissable big screen experience. Screening in a stunning 4K digital restoration from the original negative, the film’s sumptuous Technicolor is more vivid and the detail richer and sharper than ever before.
Set against the turbulent backdrop of the American Civil War, Gone with the Wind is the story of feisty, petulant southern belle Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh) and her complicated love life involving the dashing Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) and the married Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard). Based on the multi-million-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Margaret Mitchell, the film is listed by Guinness World Records as the most successful film in box office history and won ten Academy Awards including Best Actress, Best Director, Best Outstanding Production, Best Screenplay and Best Cinematography (Colour).
2019 sees MAC host a season of film across the year dedicated to screening cinematic classics in remastered 4K digital prints, offering stunning picture clarity and a chance to see well known features in a completely new light. And what better way to begin than with two true masterpieces of cinema - Lawrence Of Arabia and Gone With The Wind - complete with intermission, overture and exit music as they were screened on their original release.
