Loved the movie. Loved seeing it on the big screen. That being said
I + guest bought (2)$15.00 tickets to the 7 PM showing of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD on November 15, 2012 at the AMC16 Theatres in Burbank, CA. We arrived at our seats at 6:45 PM.
7 PM no start. By 7:15 myself and other members of the audience were asking questions. No theatre personnel gave information to the audience. At around 7:20 pm, the movie started. No preliminary introductory video or behind the scenes presentation.... just the film. In your advertisements for this "event" a large % of the ad copy was devoted to the special features presentation. I'm sure that is what contributed to the $15.00 ticket price.
I am sure you will receive similar complaints over the next couple days. Hopefully, Fathom/TCM intends to rectify the situation with its paying customers who brought this to your attention, and more importantly if it plans to rectify the situation with its participating theatres.

To Kill A Mockingbird has been my favorite movie since I was 10 yrs old. I had only since it on the television. Thanks to TMC with their one night only showing on a big movie screen, it gave me the chance to see Mockingbird in a whole new dimension. It was a totally different experience watching it with an audience. The picture quality was outstanding and the sound and music were amazing! It gave me a chance to see and hear the movie in a way that tv can never do. I highly recommend if you ever get the opportunity to see this on the big screen to take advantage of it. It has made me a bigger fan if that is possible.

50th anniversary remaster was a great experience. I enjoyed the commentary and interviews provided by TCM. Truly a classic. Wish they made more story driven well produced films like this.

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.

An all time classic. Made in 1962 and based on the best selling novel by Harper Lee. One of my favorites from when I was a little girl. Gregory Peck won an Academy Award in the Best Actor category for this film. Seeing it on the big screen was a totally different and amazing experience. It was wonderful.
