MOVIES

‘Gone With the Wind’

Moviegoers couldn’t get enough of Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara when “Gone With the Wind” arrived in 1939. Adjusted for inflation, it’s still earned more money than any other movie in the history of America. And that was before the rise of luxury theaters, back when audiences had to sit upright for all 3 hours and 58 minutes of it. Now you can crawl into a recliner and see what all the fuss was about when “Gone With the Wind” plays at 1 and 6 p.m. Sunday and Wednesday at the Galaxy Theatre locations at Boulevard Mall, Cannery and Green Valley.
