I had seen To Kill a Mockingbird only on the small screen prior to last night's showing. I knew it was a powerful movie but, on the big screen, it is even more powerful than I knew. I was moved to tears several times and chuckled at other times. I noticed details I had never seen before. The feeling of the movie stayed with me long after leaving the theater. I would love to see other moves this way.

Loved the movie and seeing it on the big screen! It has been a long time since I have seen the whole movie straight through. I did miss the interviews they usually have before the movie, though. Great time. TCM please continue to have these classic movie nights!

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.

Outstanding! And I loved the introduction! I am so grateful for Turner Classic Movies & Fandango. I'm looking forward to the next event!

One of the best movies ever made. It was wonderful to finally be able to see it on the big screen..even better. It was also great to see a pack theater. The great scipt, wonderful acting and always pertinent message will hopefully never be forgotten. Last, the music. Even with the superbness of what I already mentioned, the music makes the movie greater by expressing the feeling of the moment. Loved it.
