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.

I have loved this movie since I was a kid but this was the first time to see it on the Big Screen. It made the experience even better. I took my oldest son with me (37) and he loved it as much as I did. I know it touches on a dark subject but it is well made and I would reccommend this movie to anyone over 16 years of age.

I have seen this magnificant CLASSIC movie numerous times, and to see it finally on the big screen in HD validates the performance Gregory Peck won in 1962! Such a wonderful story & acting & art direction for the true-to-life set. I still hate Eula Mae and Mr Ewell everytime I see it and Brock Peter's as Tom Robinson always brings me to tears........... THANK YOU TCM!

It was as good (or better!) the 20th time as it was the first time! A timeless story that brings tears to my eyes every time.
