A classic!

Went to see this last night - the theatre was packed. This is one of my favorite movies, and it was even better seeing it on the big screen. They don't make movies like this anymore. Top notch acting.

To Kill a Mockingbird is still a classic - even to a new generation.

We took the entire family last night (including our 13-year-old daughter) to see To Kill a Mockingbird as I've always wanted to see it on the big screen. After all these years, it does not disappoint. Our young daughter LOVED it and could really relate to the kids in this movie. The acting in this movie is phenomenal - not just from Gregory Peck, but from the children, Brock Peters (who played the man accused) and the actors who played the sheriff, and accusatory father/daughter team. I'm so glad we were given this opportunity to see it on the big screen. Thanks so much for making it happen!

To Kill a Mockingbird 50th Anniversary

There was some serious technical difficulties with this movie in the beginning and the manager and or projectionist were not paying attention so we in the audience had to get up several times and have them check on what was going on, but once the movie got started it was wonderful. It is no wonder that Gregory Peck got an Oscar for this role. It was an awesome movie, made me laugh, and made me cry. I am so glad I found out about this and went to it.

Excellent historical drama

Besides being a classic, this movie is a historical marker of how things used to be in the South. It also shows how and why things needed to change in order to bring all of us into the future. The two unknown kids were superb. Peck does an outstanding job both as a lawyer and as a father. Was surprised, as this was my first viewing, to see the introduction of Robert Duvaul. Highly recommend the movie, and kudos to TCM for bringing the series of classics to the big screen for today's audiences. Love the introduction and background pieces at the beginning. Much better than the stupid sound bites and previews of coming attractions.
