The alt-left ideology of erasing history is now working it’s way, unfortunately, into the entertainment industry.
In the first stepping-stone toward making historically accurate Hollywood films of days past obsolete, “Gone With the Wind” has been banned from The Orpheum’s summer movie series, the theater’s board announced on Friday.
The 1939 movie, which is the biggest box-office movie in United States history (adjusted for inflation), is an “epic historical romance film,” with the setting at a plantation in the Civil War-era South.
Despite the incredible ratings of the movie throughout it’s seven decades of showings, the Orpheum Theatre Group will remove the movie after feedback from patrons following the last screening Aug. 11.
“As an organization whose stated mission is to ‘entertain, educate and enlighten the communities it serves’, the Orpheum cannot show a film that is insensitive to a large segment of its local population,” the theater’s operators said in a statement.
Memphis’ population is about 64 percent African-American. The historic theater in Downtown Memphis has shown the movie for decades, but this year’s event “generated numerous comments,” leading to the decision.
“While title selections for the series are typically made in the spring of each year, the Orpheum has made this determination early in response to specific inquiries from patrons,” the Orpheum group said.
