‘Gone With the Wind’ showings this weekend

Ponca City Now - February 10, 2015 1:13 pm

The Poncan Theatre has scheduled two showings of the 1939 spectacular, "Gone With the Wind," for Valentine’s weekend.

Show times are 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. The four-hour movie will include an intermission, Poncan Executive Director Larry King said.

Special prices have been set for the showings. Tickets are $25 per couple and include a large popcorn and two drinks. A ticket for one adult is $13 and includes popcorn and one drink. Children age 12 and younger will be admitted for $5 and may purchase concessions separately, King said.

The movie, based on the novel by Margaret Mitchell, celebrated its 75th year in 2014. It tells the story of a Southern belle who carries on a turbulent affair with a blockade runner during the American Civil War. Mitchell’s novel, written in 1936, was a Pulitzer Prize winner.

King said several people will appear in the theater wearing costumes appropriate for the period.

"I’ve been wanting to bring more of the old movies to The Poncan," King said. "I still have plans for that."
