Classic film presentations that give audiences the rare opportunity to see cinematic favorites commercial-free on the big screen have generated $5.53 million since the beginning of the year, Fathom Events announced today. The results were led by the 80th anniversary of Gone with the Wind, which grossed $2.23 million in just six nationwide screenings across four dates, setting a record as the highest-grossing classic film for Fathom Events and the event cinema industry. The previous record was set in January by Fathom and another Warner Bros. milestone from 1939, The Wizard of Oz.

While many things at Fathom remain the same, there have already been some changes under Nutt. Among them, the fact that the company has started releasing its revenue figures on a regular basis. Not surprisingly, what those numbers show is that event cinema is big business and that, as the dominant company in the market, Fathom is a force to be reckoned with.
