Prytania Theatre restarts Classic Movie Series with Gone with the Wind

Posted By on Tue, Jan 5, 2016 at 3:46 PM


The Prytania Theatre's ever-popular Classic Movie Series returns for 2016 with two showings of Gone With the Wind on Jan 10 and 13 at 10 a.m. Hollywood's hugest historical epic (which some have recently suggested should be retired along with the Confederate flag) is also its all-time domestic box-office champ — as long as you adjust for inflation. Gone with the Wind took in $198 million in 1939, which translates to $1.7 billion in 2016 dollars, putting it ahead of the original Star Wars with its $1.5 billion inflation-adjusted domestic gross. The list of inflation-adjusted, all-time U.S. box office champs includes some real surprises: Dr. Zhivago and The Ten Commandments rank among the top ten. See the full list here.
