Ala. Theaters Mark Anniversary of "Mockingbird"
Turner Classic Movies is marking the 50th anniversary of the movie "To Kill a Mockingbird" with special screenings around the country, including eight in Alabama.
TCM says the classic film will be shown Thursday night at the Rave theaters in Vestavia Hills, Hoover, Montgomery and Daphne; the Regal theaters in Trussville and Huntsville, and the Cobb theaters in Tuscaloosa and Gulf Shores.
State tourism director Lee Sentell said he expects many students to attend because Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" is widely assigned in Alabama schools.
The novel by the Monroeville native was published in 1960 and won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. The film version won three Academy Awards, including best actor for Gregory Peck.
