To Kill a Mockingbird

To see this film on the big screen, and in the black and white, was a joy. I wish there were more releases like this. Was though, disappointed that there not that many people in the theatre, and no minorities. This to me would have been a great movie for students to see.

Amazingly Moving

By doctorsister1

I couldn't believe that a movie I had seen countless times on TV could move me to tears. The dignity of Gregory Peck's interpretation of Atticus Finch and the obvious true affection that was exhibited between Scott and Atticus that spilled over into the real life actors was absolutely wonderful. With the big screen, big feelings and concepts seemed to be the right size for emotions and social statements. Mind blowing!

Powerful

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 50th Anniversary

Fantastic! This has always been my favorite movie (and favorite book), since childhood (I'm now age 62!) It had a great impact on me when I saw it as a child. It was wonderful to see it in a theater and thank goodness nobody has made the stupid mistake of colorizing this classic black and white film! The additional historical information about how the movie was made was just terrific. This is an important movie -- as important now as when it was made. And, a movie for the entire family with plenty of themes for valuable and educational family discussion. A great experience. Please keep showing these great classics in movie theaters for those of us too young to see them on the big screen when they first came out.

SO happy

I was thrilled to see that i would have the opportunity to watch what i feel is one of the best movies ever made on the big screen. This was a wonderful event and the opening bio-pic was great at giving some unknown insight into the movie. Keep up the good work TCM.
