Village Square Booksellers is sponsoring Gone With the Wind movie at the Bellows Falls Opera House on Wednesday August 4,2022 at 7pm. Prior to the movie, Dottie Morris, Associate Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion, Keene State College Diversity and Multiculturalism Department, will give us an introduction to the movie. Classic movies are $6 each and Triple Up refreshments are $5.
Presented as originally released in 1939. Includes themes and character depictions which may be offensive and problematic to contemporary audiences (hence the introduction by Dottie Morris). The epic Civil War drama focuses on the life of petulant Southern belle Scarlett O'Hara. Starting with her idyllic life on a sprawling plantation, the film traces her survival through the tragic history of the South during the Civil War and Reconstruction, and her tangled love affairs with Ashley Wilkes and Rhett Butler.
For the thousands who remember its unparalleled drama, action and romance! For the new thousands to whom the wonders will be revealed for the first time! Breathtaking spectacle, inspired acting by the greatest cast ever assembled! The screen's most exciting love story! The most-talked about picture ever made!
