Another fabulous time at a Fathom Event. The quality was fantastic. Have always wanted to see this classic on the big screen and was so happy to have the chance.

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.

To Kill A Mockingbird is both one of the greatest books and movies this country has produced. I had never seen it on the big screen.
But last night's screening had some unfortunate shortfalls. The left/right edges of the film were off-screen thus losing some of the title words and some scene's composition and, in one case, a character (the judge in the verdict scene). Worse, in three places more than half-way through the screen went blank and silent.
Sorry Fathom and Universal, these gaffs greatly reduced the enjoyment of this special viewing.

I cannot say enough about this film and the opportunity to watch it on the big screen. It was an experience I will remember forever. It's classic in every way

Even though it's 50 years old, it still has relevance to today's society. The children were marvelous--how nice that they could manage to be so creative in their play without any technology that kids depend upon today. We've come a long way in dealing with prejudice, yet there's a long way to go. Gregory Peck was outstanding as Atticus Finch. The verdict in Mr. Robinson's trial was despicable yet
not surprising given the prevailing views of ignorant people. Wonderful movie! Good for all ages. Makes for a wonderful discussion.
