Low-down on a legendary title

Have you ever wished you could be “a fly on the wall” at some important event? How about the Yalta Conference with Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin? Or the Oval Office listening to Nixon, Haldeman and Erlichman? At the Adobe Theater you can witness the (almost) true events in the private office of producer David O. Selznick as he manipulates and dominates writer Ben Hecht, and director Victor Fleming, in putting together the screenplay for “Gone With The Wind” in only five frantic days!
The clash of titans is hilarious and resulted in a film that won eight Oscars for such greats as Vivian Leigh and Clark Gable. “Moonlight and Magnolias” opens at the Adobe Theater, 9813 Fourth St. NW, today and runs through Sunday, Aug. 1. Show times are Friday-Saturday, 8 p.m.; Sunday, 2 p.m. Tickets:  $14 for adults, seniors and students $12.
For more information, call 505-898-9222 weekdays.
