The sweeping landscape paintings featured in the Crocker’s permanent collection and the upcoming exhibition American Beauty and Bounty: The Judith G. and Steaven K. Jones Collection of Nineteenth-Century Painting depict the vast landscapes of America. For this film series, we take inspiration from these collections to offer four films that show diverse views of America. Each film will be presented by a local film expert who helped select the film, and an audience Q&A will follow each screening.

Gone with the Wind features stunning landscapes and iconic performances, and is above all a cinematic masterpiece that needs to be seen on the big screen. The story of a spoiled southern belle (Vivian Leigh) who lives through the devastation of the South during the Civil War, Gone with the Wind won 10 Oscars, including the first for an African American (Hattie McDaniel). The film will be presented by Matías Bombal, movie critic and film historian of “Matías Bombal's Hollywood.” A Q&A with Matías will follow the screening.

Space is limited and advanced registration is recommended.
