I enjoyed this showing so much in Raleigh, N.C. Seeing it in the theater was such a great experience. I haven't viewed the movie in its entirety since I saw it in 1962. It did not disappoint. The story and the moral are just as relevant today.

I have seen To Kill A Mockingbird on TV before, and it is a wonderful movie. However, you do not get the full impact of the movie until you see it on the big screen. At the theatre, you see so many details otherwise missed, and you feel the characters so much deeper. You experience the total silence of the audience as Atticus gives his closing argument. His words are a powerful message about humanity that captivates the room. As he walks out of the courtroom, you admire his dignity and it feels like you are in that courtroom with him. It was an unforgettable experience that I recommend to everyone.

I was so thrilled to be able to see this wonderful film on the big screen with my idol, Gregory Peck. It was just as wonderful as always(I have seen it a million times and own the DVD) and so amazing to see it in this venue. Thank you for bringing the classics to the screen. To see the fantastic Mr Peck as the fantastic Atticus Finch was truly a dream come true. Thank you!

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.

It was great seeing TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD in pristine black-and-white again, as I had not seen it on the big screen since it opened in 1962. As it tackles racial issues that still resonate today, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD remains a lyrical evocation of childhoods shaped by both the joys and the harsh realities of life.
