“Gone With The Wind” Benefit Event


The East Point Corner Tavern is sponsoring an event to benefit EPHS. On Monday, June 6th they will run a screening of the 1939 classic movie “Gone With The Wind”, based on the novel by Atlantan, Margaret Mitchell. There are many among younger generations that are unfamiliar with GWTW and its importance to a better understanding of the history and character of the South during the civil war and in particular, the Atlanta area. This is an opportunity to pass along stories and lore about the premier of the movie in Atlanta, and best of all, from 7:00 p.m. to closing, The East Point Corner Tavern will donate 15% of all proceeds to EPHS! Costumes are encouraged and there will be door prizes. Mint Juleps will be on special to set the mood. The Corner Tavern is located at 2783 Main Street in East Point, and the phone number is 404-768-0007. Come mingle and share your knowledge and memories of this classic film with people who may be seeing “Gone With The Wind” for the very first time.
