This is AWESOME. There is a showing an hour from us!

BUT that is the week that Derek is not available. (To be with kids or be a date.)

But my MIL could go...there is a showing near her. So I'll enter anyway. :)

I had no idea they were going to show it in theaters! How cool! To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite classic. I love that book!

In the middle of this book RIGHT NOW! How cool! That is the last night of my semester (I teach reading at a community college) AND once-a-year movie night! I am for sure going! Thanks for letting me know; I've never seen the film before! Perfect timing!

I was excited for a minute, because "my" theater is actually participating. Jonathan can't go that day, though. :P

I'll pass on the tickets, but this is an amazing movie (and the book is if anything, even better). One of the most inspiring lawyer movies ever, and a reminder to stand with those who are powerless, even when it is unpopular.

I checked and there are 4 theaters within a half hour of me. To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite piece of fiction, hands down. My son just read it for the first time this summer. He wants to be Boo Radley for Halloween! I have the 40th anniversary edition, but would love to add the 50th to my collection.

I got some info about this as well but didn't look into it. I'll go for it! Terry or Amanda could go with me.

I have never seen this movie and would love to see it. Also, I have been wanting to retread this book for a while.

I'm not entering the drawing since the theater showing it is about an hour away from us which isn't doable on a weeknight. However, I did want to say that this is one of my top five favorite movies EVER. And the book? Fabulous! (It helps, of course, that I'm from Alabama. Or does that hurt my chances of liking it? I'm going with help. . .)

Remind me again, Carrie--have you read TKM?

planetnomad said...

Oooh! ooh! Oooh! Pick me! Pick me! :)

I love how they're showing classics in theaters again! I'd love to go to this one. Off to mention it on FB--does that mean I get two chances at winning?

Also I adore this book! It has everything--a clear-eyed look at prejudice and racism, growing up, courage, love. I used to make my students in Mauritania read it.

Mentioned it on FB :) Go me!

A Faithful Journey said...

This is an awesome giveaway! It is showing in a theatre about 1/2 an hour from us!! :)

One of the best books ever and Gregory Peck IS Atticus Finch! I'm going even if I don't win tickets! :)
