The classic film will return to local movie theaters for two days only.

By Emily VanSchmus

Eighty years after its original release, Gone With the Wind is returning to theaters.

Warner Bros. and Fathom Events are teaming up to bring the classic film back to a theater near you. But get your tickets quick, because there will only be four showings. To celebrate the movie’s anniversary, Gone With the Wind will be in theaters on Thursday, February 28 and Sunday, March 3—with two showtimes each day.

This isn’t the only classic to hit theaters this year; Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events are bringing 14 other classic films back to theaters throughout 2019.

This adaptation of Margaret Mitchell’s classic novel premiered in theaters in January 1940. The Civil War drama follows Scarlett O’Hara (played by Vivien Leigh) as she navigates whirlwind romances with Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) and Rhett Butler (Clark Gable). After the original release, Gone With the Wind received eight Oscars, two Academy Awards, and eight other film awards. It is also the highest-grossing movie of all time, according to Mental Floss.
