We loved the big screen version of To Kill a Mockingbird! It was emotional right from the very beginning. Loved every bit of it!

Great story and film. Great restoration. Bad presentation.

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.

To Kill a Mockingbird

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.

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

To Kill A Mockingbird

This is my favorite movie and seeing it again on a big screen (the way all great films should be seen btw) only made me love it more. How wonderful to listen to others in the audience enjoying the wonderful performances of the cast and the heart so clear in this story was most moving. I always cry at the end of the movie and last night was no exception. Really cool to find out I am not the only one, as all of us left the theater wiping tears from our eyes. I sure hope this is not the last time we get to see classics like this one on a movie screen. Please keep it up TMC!
