Gone With the Wind Atlanta Premiere – Atlanta History Center. (via)
Home video footage by Russell Bellman of the “Gone With the Wind” Atlanta Premiere (December 15, 1939). Video features the Georgian Terrace Hotel, Atlanta Municipal Auditorium, Gone With the Wind Ball, and the Loew’s Grand Theatre in Atlanta.
I know I’ve said it before, but man, I really, really wish I’d been alive when Loew’s Grand Theatre was still around.
The AJC has some really nice photos from the premiere of Gone with the Wind. I never knew there was a motorcade, teeming crowds, etc. Even has a nice playbill.
