To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite movie. I've seen it many, many times on TV, but seeing it on the big screen made me appreciate it even more. And the behind the scenes info shared before the movie began was great. So much I didn't know! What a great idea to bring this classic film to theaters to be appreciated by so many of all ages!
The acting is superb. Everyone is perfect in their role. Being a native Atlantan, I have always appreciated the authentic southern accents. Especially Scout, Jem and Dill's. Great story and character development. To Kill a Mockingbird has it all, humor, sadness, an understanding of the human spirit and the power of a child's words. All in all, a great way to spend an evening.

We loved it. All the acting was superb, the story galloped along at a great pace, and I was rivited to it. Wish today's movies were as gripping. No color, no special effects ... just first-rate acting and story telling. Thanks for making it available to see again after all those years. Hope you're planning to have more of those oldies but wonderful goodies. We'll see every one, in spite of the fact that we almost never go see current movies. We hate the jumpy graphics, the profanity, the all-too-graphic sex and the super-loud so-called music in current offerings.

Loved the movie and seeing it on the big screen! It has been a long time since I have seen the whole movie straight through. I did miss the interviews they usually have before the movie, though. Great time. TCM please continue to have these classic movie nights!

I loved being able to see "To Kill a Mockingbird" in a theatre. This is a timeless classic that continually provides faith and hope in human nature. Compassion, love and acceptance of seeing the truth about people while honoring their inner beauty versus their outward appearance are all represented in this amazing film. I wish the Ben Mankiewicz segment could have been longer, as he clearly loved this film as much as the audience, and he enjoyed sharing the history and interviews. I think it was important to mention that Harper Lee based the Dill character on Truman Capote as well.
I hope TCM and Fantom Events continue this series. There are some many films that deserve the full theatre treatment again.
