ONE of Brisbane's oldest movie theatres will fire up its projector on Sunday to screen the grandest of all Hollywood classics.

Film legends Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh will return to the silver screen in the 1939 masterpiece Gone With The Wind.

The screening, at the Regal Twin Cinema in Graceville, will be Queensland's first digital projection of the film.

Cinema general manager Paul Roobottom said the movie was one of four Hollywood classics re-mastered to digital format.

"And by using the highest quality projectors, audiences will see Gone With The Wind shine like never before," he said.

Mr Roobottom, who has worked at the 90-year-old cinema for more than three decades, said the movie had always been one of his favourites.

The event follows the success of a similar revival screening held at the cinema in February.

"As a salute to the end of 35mm film projection we featured a few Hollywood black and white classics," Mr Roobottom said.

"At the end, audience members approached me and said I had to keep doing these kind of screenings on a regular basis."

Gone With The Wind runs for 238 minutes and will be shown this Sunday at10am.

For more information phone 3379 1848.

Satellite Newspaper has three double passes to see Gone With The Wind to give away.
