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.

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.

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!

To Kill a Mockingbird at Plaza Bonita, CA

To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite films, and I was eager to see it on the big screen. I enjoyed the event tremendously, although the restoration on portions of the film gave it the fuzzy look of a 60's television show shot on video. I am not sure if this was due to its being transmitted via satellite, but it left me feeling as if the theater were a big television screen. I saw the film with a friend, and we both noticed that Mayella (the supposed rape victim) did not touch the Bible when she was sworn in to the witness chair. This was something we probably never would have seen on a smaller screen. It is a detail that seemed to explain the character's willingness to lie on the stand.
