Lobby Card from the Laurel Theatre

Seventy-six years ago tonight, “Gone with the Wind” premiered in Atlanta. Laurel’s original movie theater gave it the grand treatment for both its initial release in April 1940 and for a re-release in 1961 honoring the Civil War Centennial. Pete has shared some artifacts from both on his page, which you can see here.
