  1. This movie shows people at their best and at their worst. Situations like the trial and accusation of rape create the time and place when we show our true selves.

    This is a classic story set in a simpler time when civil rights hadn’t even come into play, yet. It’s a time when summers were long, Halloween was special and justice was finally served in the end. Gregory Peck deserved the Oscar that he won for his roll as Atticus Finch. If you’ve never seen this wonderful movie; remember it’s about a time that was part of our American history and not based on today’s standards of equal rights.

    Human frailties and how we react to them. A powerful movie with excellent acting.

      yes, absolutely… and I think it will be particularly powerful on the Big Screen… thank you so much for entering and Good Luck…

  5. Patrick Cavey says:

    Well lets look at it from the industry perspective first. Atticus Finch was named by AFI as the #1 hero in movie history. He is color blind when it comes to injustice against all humans which helps to make him the single greatest influential character of the 20th century. The film was also named as the 25th greatest on AFI’s 10th anniverasry top 100 list, no small feat when it comes to number of classics it was able to beat out. Personally, To Kill a Mockingbird is by far Gregory Pecks best role. One of the all time great actors, his portrayal of Finch is what great acting is all about. There are some roles where you can watch them and say ” You know who could have played him/her…” You absolutely can’t do that here. Peck was born to play Atticus and we as movie fans are lucky he was around at the right time to bring him to life.

  6. julie moon says:

    The movie is a classic~ a story that is still timely and important today, and the acting is sublime. It brings all the emotions.

  7. Liliana Maria Radwanski says:

    What makes it a classic is that this film was taken from a classic novel.
    It has an ageless , timeless story. Gregory Peck was Born to play Atticus Finch.
    He was amazing in this Film. I would so Love to see it on the Big Screen!

  8. Steve D says:

    The slow, deliberate pace perfectly emulates a hot southern summer. Local casting of the children and extras made it all the more authentic. The fact that the author was involved in the production kept the story true to the novel.

  9. Justin Probert says:

    When I was in high school I took an elective course on classic film. I only watched modern film at that time (early 1980’s) and seeing To Kill A Mockingbird for the first time changed my life indelibly. I’ve been a classic film fan ever since and have watched this film repeatedly over the years but would love a chance to finally see it on the big screen. It is a classic for many reasons but the character that resonated the most for me is Scout. Her innocence at the opening of the movie and her transformation during the course of the three years depicted in the film had a huge impact on me.

  11. Mark PAGAN says:

    Powerful adaptation of a powerful novel – reason enough to go see it properly large.

  12. Elizabeth McGrady says:

    To Kill a Mockingbird is the the never ending story of good vs evil and how it takes just is one person to take a stand against the masses for the rights of the one unjustly accused.

  13. Jlwthe2nd says:

    I’ve not seen this movie yet, but have been meaning to for quite some time. Such fun seeing these classic movies on the big screen again!

  14. David C Thompson says:

    To Kill A Mockingbird is America.

  15. Kathleen says:

    I have read the book and seen the movie. “To Kill a Mockingbird” is a classic because it encompasses themes that have always and will continue to always be with mankind. There is a lesson there, that humanity must see their fellow man as human and as worthy of consideration and kindness. It will never go out of style.

  16. Cynthia Fentress says:

    I think what makes To Kill a Mockingbird a classic is two fold. One, it’s the accessibility of the story. From the day it was written to now, and looking to the future, it will always remain a story that is relevant. Second, Atticus Finch. His character, virtues and nobility are something we all strive for, or certainly should be. It’s also one of the few books that was perfectly adapted to a screenplay. Gregory Peck. Need I say more?!

  17. Joe Johnson says:

    Besides just being a great classic film it’s still very much relevant in our country and world today.

  18. Philip Rizk says:

    One of the best movie adaptations of a book, ever!!! The movie makes my wife and I both sad and happy. I also, very much, liked the background music to this fine film and can only imagine what it would sound and look like on the big screen.

  19. Lee Eckhaus says:

    The movie is a classic because it elegantly dealt with a very difficult topic, at a time when such topics were not discussed. It took a lot of guts to make the movie.

  20. Alton Gardner says:

    Not sure about when it was released but the issues addressed bring out raw emotion. Still the issue of racism brings out worst in some people.

  21. AJ Long says:

    To Kill a Mockingbird captures the life of a small town in the rural South, wrestling with racism, morality, prejudice, child-rearing, single-parenting, the effects of one man standing against insurmountable odds for what is right, and the importance of a father’s influence. These themes are still relevant today. I’ve read this book many times and it still moves me each time, as does the film adaptation, starring Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch. It’s as faithful to the book as any movie has ever been.

  22. Susan Stiers says:

    The first time I watched To Kill a Mockingbird as a child, I felt like I was right there, running around with Scout, Jem, and Dill. I was one of them. Every time I’ve watched it since then, I am still there but in a broader sense. I never tire of seeing this incredible story. In a sad way, it’s timeless because the same problems still exist…but it’s a classic because it still has the quiet power to open people’s eyes and make a difference.

  23. Heather Burelle says:

    What makes this one of the best is that the movie is a pretty faithful adaptation of the book and all the actors in the movie totally embody what you imagine them to be while reading the book.

  24. To kill a mocking bird is a classic because it touches on issues that are timeless. Equality, racial values, family, childhood coming of age. Fear of the unknown as well as basic social issues.

  25. Bill Hamell says:

    It looks at something we don’t want too see

  26. Marcia Tracy says:

    To Kill a Mockingbird is a powerful story that is timeless, and relavant to the times today in the world of good vs evil.

    I first saw “To Kill A Mockingbird” on the big screen before I was a teenager, possibly during its initial run. (I’m 63 now). It hit me hard then and it still hits me hard today. I might have been close to the age of Scout and Jem at the time, so maybe that’s why it resonated with me then and still resonates with me today. Possibly my favorite movie of all time. It never gets old. The message is as strong today as ever … and it will always be strong. Maybe that’s what makes it a classic. That, and the impeccable acting throughout the entire cast.

    I plan on attending whether I win the free tickets or not. To see this again on the big screen will be amazing for a couple of reasons … #1, it will take me back to my youth when I saw it on the big screen for the very first time … and #2, this is how a CLASSIC movie should be seen … big and beautiful on a giant screen, while sharing the experience with other movie goers.

  28. To Kill A Mockingbird is a classic because it shines a light on a deeply ingrained problem in America’s history. Its setting and historical background makes it a distinctly American story. The issue of race relations is one that is uncomfortable to discuss and yet absolutely necessary to confront if we are to move forward as a society.

  29. Sara Stewart says:

    It is one of the most iconic films of its time. Daring to broach a subject that was still taboo… the fact that all people have the right to a fair trial regardless of race, and the heartbreaking aftermath when Tom Robinson had the nerve to tell the truth about a white woman. Add Boo into the mix and this is a story that will never be forgotten.

  30. Erin Sullivan says:

    It’s one of my favorite movies. I’ve only seen it on tv. I would love to see it in the theatres though. Gregory Peck made it the best movie of all. It’s based on a Harper Lee novel. The best line of all is “It’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”
