To Kill A Mockingbird

Written November 27, 2014
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.

When The Story Was the Movie

My wife commented as "To Kill a Mockingbird" ended that she loves coming to these special presentations because as the film ends the silence is replaced with applause. There were no explosions, rampant shootings, or gratuitous sex. No chases or people jumping across roof tops. We sat quietly as we were introduced to the Finch family, their neighbors and town. We saw people going about their daily lives without over-dramatization. The real lives of quiet peaceful people. People that have problems, gossip and share moments together. Tragedy enters their lives as it accompanies ours. A person's weaknesses and prejudices leads to the death of an innocent. Unlike today their is no great outcry, no protests through out the TV,web and Twitter. No video on YouTube. Just quiet desperation of people trying to survive in a troubled time. Caring for and about those around them. Gossip gives way in the face of truth and reality. Emotions felt deeply without unnecessary tirades. Dennis Deitsch

I have loved this movie ever since I first saw it many years ago, but I had never seen it on the big screen. The movie is so powerful, and finally seeing it in the theatre made it even more so. I'm soooooo glad I decided to go! This is a must see movie for all ages!

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!

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!
