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.

Better 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.

This movie is a classic so I don't know what else I can say to praise it that has not already been said. However, the experience of seeing it on the big screen was incredible! This was such a great experience! I can't wait to see more classic movies on the big screen!

TCM Presents To Kill a Mockingbird 50th Anniversary

An excellent movie but the first time I have seen it on the big screen. Excellent performances by Gregory Peck, Mary Badham & Phillip Alford. Excellent because it deals with common prejudices: Aunt Stephanie's rant about Boo Radley comes to mind. Childhood imaginations about evil people living down the street as Jem (Alford) lets us know: "She'll kill ya, quick as look at ya." Don't we all remember! The movie's main theme about blacks being second-class citizens complete with degrading grammar, spotlights the darkness of the human soul. Ignoring the truth also spotlights an invincible ignorance that's spellbinding. Along with the human darkness comes the enlightened and humble Atticus Finch (Peck). He accurately and convincingly lays out the truth but false camaraderie wins out-temporarily. The San Gabriel Mountains in the background can also be seen on the big screen.

To Kill A Mockingbird is the first movie I remember seeing by myself in my hometown theatre as an impressionable 9 year old in 1963. I loved it then as I love it now. So many wonderful messages in the book and film. Thank you, Harper Lee, for helping set my compass toward "walking around in another person's shoes." Thank you, TCM, for bringing it to the big screen. It would be fantastic to see more of our yesteryear films resurrected in this way.
