Banned Books on Film: To Kill a Mockingbird

Southern comforts abound in this big-screen adaptation of Harper Lee's novel as lawyer Atticus Finch (Gregory Peck, in an Oscar-winning role) defends an innocent black man (Brock Peters) against rape charges but ends up in a maelstrom of hate and prejudice. Meanwhile, with help from a friend (John Megna), Finch's children, Jem (Phillip Alford) and Scout (Mary Badham), set their sights on making contact with a reclusive neighbor (Robert Duvall).

Cost: $7. Tickets available online or on the night of the show at the entrance to Whiteman Hall.

NOTE: Judging from the turnout at the Maya Lin event (and it is First Friday), those attending may want to get there early! :-)
