Oh how I love this movie and to see it on the big screen is such a treat!
I want my kids to see it again. It is so real and touches the complicated human condition

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.

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!

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.

I’ve seen the film To Kill A Mockingbird dozens of times. It is one of my all-time favorites. With the Turner Classic Movies event, I was excited about seeing the digital restoration on the wide screen but was not expecting any surprises. What I saw dazzled me! The restoration version in a theater afforded the audience the opportunity to see the actors’ subtle interchange through facial expressions and movement. Much gets lost when watching on a TV screen. The set design was showcased in the larger-then-life scale, details I’ve never seen in my multiple viewings made the film seem brand new… from the donut in Jem’s hand when in his tree house bemoaning the fact that Atticus would not play football for the Methodists, to the leopard pattern of Miss Maudie’s dress on Scout’s first day at school, to the picture of Atticus’s wife on the mantel in his bedroom in the closing scenes. You just have to smile. This film is immortal; it will be entertaining generations to come.
