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.

To Kill a Mockingbird is my all time favorite movie and I've seen A LOT of movies! I own a copy on DVD and watch it often. I may not be the most objective reviewer/critic. I have never seen it on the big screen so that was a big draw for me.
In the beginning, there was some trivia about the actors and the art direction. I was amazed that the film was made on a backlot of Universal Studios. They dismantled an entire community of clapboard houses and re-assembled them on the backlot. The acting was supberb especially the children.
The remastering was gorgeous! There was a good crowd despite a week night showing and everyone enjoyed it. We laughed and cried. My favorite scene is when Atticus walks out of the courtroom with the African American crowd standing. The Rev. tells Miss Jane Louise to stand as her father is passing. Very emotional scene for me.
As I said, I'm not at all objective where this movie is concerned. I LOVED it and would see it again if avaiilable.

Watched "To Kill A Mockingbird" yesterday at the Rockaway AMC with two other people. Also a favorite of mine. It made me laugh and cry. It was amazing to watch on the big screen. You tend to pay more attention to it. Much more of an impact on the big screen. A must see for anyone who loves the old black and white films.

I have loved this movie since I was a kid but this was the first time to see it on the Big Screen. It made the experience even better. I took my oldest son with me (37) and he loved it as much as I did. I know it touches on a dark subject but it is well made and I would reccommend this movie to anyone over 16 years of age.
