Gone with the Wind – You Need Kissing Badl
The 1939 Oscar-triumphing traditional has been screened at The Orpheum Theatre every summer season for over three many years.
Now Gone With The Wind has been cancelled from subsequent summer season’s film collection following “numerous feedback” after a recent screening.
According to Entertainment Weekly, The Orpheum Theatre Group said: “While title picks for the collection are typically made within the spring of every 12 months, the Orpheum has made this determination early in response to unique inquiries from shoppers.
“The Orpheum appreciates comments on its programming from all contributors of the mid-south network. The recent screening of Gone With the Wind on the Orpheum on Friday, August eleven, 2017, generated severa remarks. The Orpheum carefully reviewed they all.”
