"To Kill a Mockingbird" Theater showing November 15th
I figured that there have to be a lot of fans of this movie here, and wanted to make sure that you were all aware that, on November 15, there will be special theater screenings of this wonderful movie all over the country on its 50th anniversary.
A couple of months ago, they held a similar screening for the anniversary (60th?) of "Singin' in the Rain." I went to that one, in spite of the fact that I have seen the movie on TV a dozen times. I was a little bit doubtful, but figured that it would be a fun evening. I was right. The theater wasn't full, by any means, and the tickets were a little on the expensive side, but, everyone in that theater had a wonderful time, laughing and clapping and, sometimes even singing along.
I'm betting that this experience will be similar, minus the laughing and singing, of course. I saw this movie at the theaters when it came out and it has stuck in my memory ever since. I've seen it since, on TV and loved it just as much. I can't wait to see it again, in the movie theater. There's just something about seeing a wonderful movie on that big screen that can't be duplicated when you are seeing it at home, on TV.
Thanks for the heads up! I will be en route to visit family in Virginia that evening, really bummed that I'll miss it. Would love to see it on the big screen. Fortunately we have a great little cafe/movie house near us that frequently shows old movies (where I first saw "Casablanca") and I'm sure they'll have it at some point...
Thank you! It will be playing at a few theaters near me, and I am looking forward to seeing it on the big screen. I think it's one of the few movies that does justice to the book from which it was taken. Plus, Gregory Peck, one of the most handsome men ever to walk the earth.

Thanks for the info! Already trying to round up someone to go with.
Now THIS seems to me to be the mark of a truly superior book: I DON'T KNOW if I've seen the movie. I think perhaps I have blended the vivid, heart-grabbing details of the book with the stills and clips I've seen of the movie. But I'm really not sure. All I know is I'd like to see it (once again/for the first time) on the big screen!
