Frankly, My Dear...CAPA Movie Series Begins With GWTW

Just a quick reminder to my readers who are also fans of classic films and live in the Columbus, Ohio area that CAPA's Summer Movie Series kicks off this weekend with the overblown, overlong, over-acted and highly over-rated 1939 "classic" Gone With The Wind, a film most notable for shocking millions of blue haired old ladies by being the first American movie in which a character used the word "Damn," and for an early screen appearance by future Superman, George Reeves.
Future films in the Series, which runs through August 27, include Citizen Kane, Mary Poppins, The Wizard of Oz, Brigadoon, Chinatown, and the best damn movie ever made (a.k.a. Casablanca) as well as two Saturday morning sessions of classic theatrical cartoons featuring Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry and other favorites.
All movies in the Series screen at the beautiful old Ohio Theater downtown. Gone With The Wind plays tomorrow through Sunday at 7:30 pm nightly with 2 pm matinees on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $3.50 or $3.00 for senior citizens with a strip of ten, good for any movie in the series, available for $21.50
