According to Guardian, an iconic cinema in Memphis, Tennessee, has stopped screening Gone With The Wind after the Orpheum Theatre’s board deemed the 1939 classic “insensitive”.

Victor Fleming’s film has been dropped from next year’s summer movie series receiving “numerous comments” from cinema-goers regarding the screening earlier this month.

Based on Margaret Mitchell’s book, Gone With The Wind focuses on a Southern plantation during the Civil War and Reconstruction periods. Over the years, the film has been heavily criticised for being sympathetic towards the South and depicting certain racial stereotypes.

Do you support this? Do you find the movie racially offensive?
