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!

The movie was absolutely great! The acting was REAL, you believed each one of the actors were actually the characters. The Director, Robert Mulligan was a genius in his ability to convey this story. It is an extremely moving picture, Mulligan was able to show the love between Atticus and his children, as well as the respect he had for Calpurnia, the black woman that raised and cared for his children, and in turn the respect the black community had for Atticus. Also, the unfairness of very narrow minded people and a way of life. Mulligan, through Atticus, Jem and Scout showed what really matters in life and the values we all should live by.
This is an extremely important movie, which was released at a very tumultuous time of our country's history. The acting, directing, music and sets rank right at the top of all the movies ever made!
HOORAY, HOORAY to TCM for allowing us the great pleasure of seeing this and other movie classics on the big screen!!

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.

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!

It was great seeing TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD in pristine black-and-white again, as I had not seen it on the big screen since it opened in 1962. As it tackles racial issues that still resonate today, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD remains a lyrical evocation of childhoods shaped by both the joys and the harsh realities of life.
