David O. Selznick’s most expensive film since “GWTW” had an invitational world premiere gala at the Egyptian Theatre on December 30th, 1946. The Technicolor epic opened to the public the next day (New Year’s Eve) at the Egyptian as well as the Vogue Theatre as a reserved seat roadshow, with two performances daily and three on weekends and holidays. The booking was for two weeks only at the Egyptian, and “indefinitely” at the Vogue.
