The theatre group in a statement said, “The Orpheum appreciates feedback on its programming from all members of the mid-south community.

One of the users commented on the Orpheum's Facebook page calling the film "racist", while another commented that they will surely rid this community of all tributes to white supremacy.
Further, the Vivian Leigh's script copy of "Gone With The Wind" will be up for auction. The Victor Fleming directorial has also been dropped from the summer cinema series planned for next year. Earlier, 'Gone with the Wind' has won eight Academy Awards, including best picture and best director, is based on life during the Civil War and Reconstruction period.
