Turner Classic Movies to Mark 50th Anniversary of Book

Posted: Updated:

  Turner Classic Movies is marking the 50th Anniversary of the movie "To Kill a Mockingbird."  There are special screenings around the country, including eight in Alabama. 

  The classic film will be shown Thursday night at the Rave theatres in Vestavia Hills, Hoover, Montgomery, and Daphne.  The Regal Theatres in Trussville and Huntsville, and the Cobb Theatres in Tuscaloosa and Gulf Shores. 

  State Tourism director Lee Sentell says he expects many students to attend because Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" is widely assigned in Alabama schools.
