You have to bring us more TCM to the big screen! I've seen this movie many times on TV, but seeing this classic black & white on the big screen was amazing! The cinematography, camera angles and music were fantastic. Peck was impeccable. Sure miss the actors from back in the day. It was a true classic experience! More please!

To Kill A Mockingbird

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!!

Watched "To Kill A Mockingbird" yesterday at the Rockaway AMC with two other people. Also a favorite of mine. It made me laugh and cry. It was amazing to watch on the big screen. You tend to pay more attention to it. Much more of an impact on the big screen. A must see for anyone who loves the old black and white films.

Great film

This is a wonderful movie. It is nice to see a film with no special effects or over the top visuals, just great screen play and outstanding performances. It is interesting to see how far we have come from the 60 when this film was made about issues in the 30's.

To Kill a Mockingbird 50th Anniversary

To Kill a Mockingbird is my all time favorite movie and I've seen A LOT of movies! I own a copy on DVD and watch it often. I may not be the most objective reviewer/critic. I have never seen it on the big screen so that was a big draw for me. In the beginning, there was some trivia about the actors and the art direction. I was amazed that the film was made on a backlot of Universal Studios. They dismantled an entire community of clapboard houses and re-assembled them on the backlot. The acting was supberb especially the children. The remastering was gorgeous! There was a good crowd despite a week night showing and everyone enjoyed it. We laughed and cried. My favorite scene is when Atticus walks out of the courtroom with the African American crowd standing. The Rev. tells Miss Jane Louise to stand as her father is passing. Very emotional scene for me. As I said, I'm not at all objective where this movie is concerned. I LOVED it and would see it again if avaiilable.
