If you’re in the mood for catching a movie or other specialty program in a cinematic setting, you’ve found the right column. Each week Film Scene takes a look ahead at the next seven days’ worth of alternative cinema events taking place around the greater Savannah area.
First up in our cornucopia of celluloid (or zeroes and ones, as it were) is the Tybee Post’s one-night-only Jan. 18 revival of one of the Golden Age of Hollywood’s all-time classic features, the 1939 romantic drama “Gone with the Wind,” with Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable and Olivia de Havilland. Set during the Civil War, this sweeping historical epic is fairly long in the tooth and has not aged nearly as well as some of its adherents might have you believe. Still, it’s a film that deserves to be seen on the big screen, and this 200-seat restored theater just a few minutes’ walk from the ocean is just the place to catch it.
Even if you have seen one of the myriad of cable and satellite TV airings of “Gone with the Wind,” it’s really something else in a darkened theater in a town that was famously spared from the brutal wartime arson depicted in the movie. Showtime is at 7 p.m., and admission price includes your choice of a beverage (beer, wine or soft drinks). Admission info on all events covered in Film Scene can be found in our accompanying sidebar listings.
