This was SUPER! It was wonderful to see this amazing story on the big screen - Anyone that missed this showing missed a once in a lifetime event. See the "classics" on a big screen is like seeing something for the first time! It was a great evening. Bring us MORE!!

I enjoyed this showing so much in Raleigh, N.C. Seeing it in the theater was such a great experience. I haven't viewed the movie in its entirety since I saw it in 1962. It did not disappoint. The story and the moral are just as relevant today.

I have seen To Kill A Mockingbird on TV before, and it is a wonderful movie. However, you do not get the full impact of the movie until you see it on the big screen. At the theatre, you see so many details otherwise missed, and you feel the characters so much deeper. You experience the total silence of the audience as Atticus gives his closing argument. His words are a powerful message about humanity that captivates the room. As he walks out of the courtroom, you admire his dignity and it feels like you are in that courtroom with him. It was an unforgettable experience that I recommend to everyone.

To Kill a Mockingbird

One of the all time great movies. Gregory Peck and cast are outstanding! I read the book, taught it in high school English class in the 60s and have the DVD. But there is nothing like seeing it on the big screen. And my daughter got to see the big screen version for the first time. Picture quality and sound were excellent. She said, "You could see Gregory's Pecks pores," it was so clear.

Does it really need to be said?

This story is a classic; always has been, always will be. IMO, anyhow. I have loved the novel since I can remember, and the film leaves nothing to be desired. It is one of my favourites, so of course I took the opportunity to see it on the big screen--something I have never had the chance to do. This ensemble of actors is simply outstanding. The direction, the cinematography, the acting--brilliant. Almost throughout the whole film, I actually felt like I was there with the Finch family, and that I was witnessing everything as if it were happening right in front of me. Atticus Finch is probably the closest thing to a perfect role model, which to me almost emanates from Peck himself. With so many touching and emotional scenes in this film, I often found myself tearing up. This is a story everyone should take the time to experience.
