To Kill a Mockingbird


Dir. Robert Mulligan. 1962, 129 mins. 35mm.* With Gregory Peck, Mary Badham. Harper Lee’s heart-wrenching autobiographical novel of racial hatred in small- town 1930s Alabama is one of the most acclaimed and beloved literary adaptations in Hollywood history. This atmospheric and resonant coming-of-age story featured first-time actress Mary Badham, who was 10 years old when she played the young Scout.

*Due to delivery issues relating to the storm, the 35mm print of To Kill a Mockingbird will not arrive in time for our screening. The film will be shown from a DVD.
