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.

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.

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.

This story is a classic; always has been, always will be. IMO, anyhow. I have loved the novel since I can remember, and the film leaves nothing to be desired. It is one of my favourites, so of course I took the opportunity to see it on the big screen--something I have never had the chance to do.
This ensemble of actors is simply outstanding. The direction, the cinematography, the acting--brilliant. Almost throughout the whole film, I actually felt like I was there with the Finch family, and that I was witnessing everything as if it were happening right in front of me.
Atticus Finch is probably the closest thing to a perfect role model, which to me almost emanates from Peck himself. With so many touching and emotional scenes in this film, I often found myself tearing up. This is a story everyone should take the time to experience.

It sounds so cliche to say they don't make movies like this anymore but when was the last time you saw a move that didn't have special effects and computer generated stuff. This is a movie about people and the emotions that we all share, The close ups of the actors faces which you don't see on a tv screen are central to the appreciation of the story. The music tells a story itself and is perfect as Elmer Bernstein always is,( Magnificent Seven.. The Great Escape among many others) The chemistry among the actors is perfection and what more can be said about Gregory Peck. He is Atticus Finch. Go see this on the big screen if you can. It is a totally new experience . It will stay with you forever. Thanks to TCM and please do more on the big screen.
