"Gone With the Wind" will not be shown in the future by a Tennessee theater that decided it was "insensitive" to many in the local community.
The 1939 movie, which marked the first Oscar win by a black actor, depicts a romanticized view of slavery and life on a Southern plantation before, during and after the Civil War.
"Gone With the Wind," which won 10 Academy Awards in 1940, including for best picture, had been shown by the Orpheum Theatre Group for years as part of an annual Summer Movie Series, according to Memphis' Commercial-Appeal. At times, it was screened more than once a year, the paper said. This year, however, a different climate prevailed.
