KENT LAKES, N.Y. -- The Hollywood classic “Gone with the Wind” will be screened at a special two-day event in Kent Lakes honoring actress Olivia de Havilland’s 100 birthday.

De Havilland, who will be an official centenarian on July 1, played Melanie Hamilton, the fiancé of Scartlett O’Hara’s secret amour, Ashley Wilkes, in the beloved 1939 film.

The movie will be shown from 4-9 p.m. on Saturday, June 11, at the Lake Carmel Arts Center, located at 640 Route 52, Kent Lakes.

On Sunday, June 12, there will be a reading at the center of “Moonlilght & Magnolias,” a comedy by Ron Hutchinson, an Emmy award winning Irish playwright and screenwriter.

The reading runs from 5-7 p.m.

‘Moonlight’ is based on a true story about the writing of the screenplay for “Gone with the Wind.”

The movie was produced by David O. Selznick and based on Margaret Mitchell’s best-selling novel of the same name.
