Classic Showing at a Classic on Flickr.Smell the popcorn, sit in the balcony or the mezzanine (mezzanine just sounds cool, doesn’t it?), and enjoy the classic of classics. Sunday, August 18th at 2:00 pm - “Gone With The Wind” has become a mainstay in the Alabama Theatre Summer Film Series. Yes, I know it is a four hour movie but it will either be blistering hot or raining Sunday - maybe an afternoon with Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable will be just the ticket. 
And, the movie is only part of the attraction. If you’ve never been to the Alabama Theatre it is something to behold. From the glitzy box office to the various lobbies and stairways to the bathrooms (yes, the bathrooms) there is so much to explore. So, if the movie seems a little slow, get up and meander the grand old theatre for a look at a time gone by. Just be sure to get back in your seat in time to hear Clark say “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn”.
