Awesome!!! A must see in the big screen! Every actor is at the top of their game in this one. This film is more than a classic, it's a legend in it's own right. I would go as far as to say this is my favorite movie of all time.

There is nothing better than watching a movie on the big screen. In this instance, that was never more true. I saw things I had never noticed before when I watched this movie on my TV set. The wonderful sets made you feel like you were right there in that town in another era.
All performances were so real. The two children acted like children and every one of their thoughts showed up on their faces. Gregory Peck deserved his oscar as he was the ever steady presence and guidance for his two children and others.
Interestingly enough all the pearls of wisdom didn't just come from him but perhaps because of his guidance, both Jem and Scout surprise us all with the way they stand up for what's right and show their loyalty and human decency.
I loved this movie before but am now more attracted to it for its harsh reality, sweet innocence and hopeful message.
Thanks for making it available on the big screen.

Absolutely amazing on the big screen. My wife and I laughed and cried all through this timeless classic. Movies have such a powerful impact on the large screen. We have enjoyed all the TCM Presents series but we were truly excited about seeing Gregory Peck in his Oscar winning performance. It is also such a treat to actually be able to see and hear an entire movie without interruptions because your fellow moviegoers are just as interested in seeing the whole movie as you are and don't want to miss any of it. Perhaps it is because the crowd is a little older and can sit still for a movie that doesn't rely on special effects or CGI to keep you entertained. It is the content and how the actor plies his trade. Loved this presentation of To Kill A Mockingbird and can't wait for future "TCM Presents Movies". If you need any suggestions just let me know I have a few I could recommend that I and I believe many others would love too.

This was a great experience. Totally enthralling. You become totally involved in the plot and live the experiences with the characters. The acting is impecable. The filming techniques are so much better than computer animation, there is no comparison. A movie of this calibur is a rarity and belongs on the big screen.

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.
