Prize Pack Giveaway this Weekend for Upcoming "To Kill a Mockingbird" Screening...Plus...

The Lady Eve's Reel Life is pleased to take part in a "prize pack" giveaway sponsored by Fathom Events and Harper Perennial books in celebration of the 50th anniversary of To Kill a Mockingbird, the 1962 film version of Harper Lee's acclaimed novel.

The prize pack consists of a pair of tickets to the special presentation on Thursday, November 15th, when movie theaters throughout the U.S. will screen the film - as well as a copy of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book.

Update: ClassicBecky's name was drawn, she's been contacted and will soon receive her prize, a pair of tickets as well as the novel, from Fathom Events/Harper Perennial.
To participate, first click here for a list of participating theaters to make sure there is a screening at a theater near you. Next, comment on this post (and feel free to share it on your own blog, Facebook and/or Twitter). Finally, I'll select a winner at random on Sunday, October 28. (For more information contact

Gregory Peck with Oscar and Sophia Loren
This special presentation is the fourth event of the TCM Event Series in conjunction with NCM Fathom and Universal pictures. The film has been newly restored by Universal in celebration of its 100th anniversary. The presentation will begin with an introduction by Turner Classic Movies host Ben Mankiewicz, who will take viewers behind the scenes on the making of the timeless classic via interviews from the TCM Archives. To Kill a Mockingbird was nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture. It garnered three - Best Actor for Gregory Peck, Best Sceenplay and Best Art Direction/Set Decoration. Future Best Actor Oscar-winner Robert Duvall made his big screen debut in the film as the enigmatic 'Boo Radley.'

To Kill a Mockingbird is a film with both a message and a heart. The event and book make for a perfectly serendipitous lead-in to the Thanksgiving season.


  1. I'm in! One by my house is AMC Roseville in Minnesota

  2. I'm in, too. The Celebration Cinema in Lansing, MI, is my theater.


  3. The Galaxy 14 here in Indy is showing it -- throw my name in the hat! The only copy of To Kill A Mockingbird I have is a very old soft-cover, and wear and tear is extreme!

  4. This is one of my favorite movies and books! So excited to see it on the big screen, I'd be even more excited if I got to see it for free. :)

  5. Thanks to all for your entries and congratulations, Becky!

  6. I'm reeling with the feeling, Eve -- What good luck! Thanks so much!
