Thank you, Fathom Events and Regal Cinemas Commerce NJ for showing To Kill A Mockingbird on the big screen. Might just be the best movie ever made - totally honest, amazing for its time! Hard to imagine anyone but Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch. The role of a lifetime in a movie that transcends time..

Absolutely amazing on the big screen. My wife and I laughed and cried all through this timeless classic. Movies have such a powerful impact on the large screen. We have enjoyed all the TCM Presents series but we were truly excited about seeing Gregory Peck in his Oscar winning performance. It is also such a treat to actually be able to see and hear an entire movie without interruptions because your fellow moviegoers are just as interested in seeing the whole movie as you are and don't want to miss any of it. Perhaps it is because the crowd is a little older and can sit still for a movie that doesn't rely on special effects or CGI to keep you entertained. It is the content and how the actor plies his trade. Loved this presentation of To Kill A Mockingbird and can't wait for future "TCM Presents Movies". If you need any suggestions just let me know I have a few I could recommend that I and I believe many others would love too.

This is my favorite movie/ book ever! I have seen the movie lots of times, but nothing compared to seeing it on the big screen last night. I noticed lots of little details that I've never seen before. Overall, seeing this movie on the big screen made this already phenomenal movie so much more powerful.
I am so glad that TCM is creating these events to see old classics in theaters for those of use who were born a few decades too late. Great work TCM! Please keep it up!

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite films, and I was eager to see it on the big screen.
I enjoyed the event tremendously, although the restoration on portions of the film gave it the fuzzy look of a 60's television show shot on video. I am not sure if this was due to its being transmitted via satellite, but it left me feeling as if the theater were a big television screen.
I saw the film with a friend, and we both noticed that Mayella (the supposed rape victim) did not touch the Bible when she was sworn in to the witness chair. This was something we probably never would have seen on a smaller screen. It is a detail that seemed to explain the character's willingness to lie on the stand.

This was a unique experience and I am so glad that I got to experience it. To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic and to see it on the big screen was well worth it. The introduction from TCM really added something to the viewing. It was great to learn a few new things.
