As we announced a couple of weeks ago, the TCM Event Series continues next Thursday, November 15th, with a screening of To Kill a Mockingbird in theaters nationwide. NCM Fathom joins TCM and Universal Pictures in bringing this newly restored classic to the screen for its fiftieth anniversary, as part of Universal’s own 100th anniversary celebration this year. The screening, hosted by TCM’s Ben Mankiewicz, will be preceded by a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, featuring archival interviews with some of those involved in the movie’s production.
Screenings start at 7PM local time, and some theaters may feature matinee showings–check your local movie listings for more details. To find a participating theater near you, check out the Fathom website.
As part of this event, Fathom is hosting a To Kill a Mockingbird trivia contest on its site. Enter for the chance to win a copy of Harper Lee’s novel AND a copy of the film on Blu-ray! The contest runs through next Thursday evening, so get your entries in ASAP.
