"To Kill a Mockingbird" 50th Anniversary Screening with Mary Badham in Person
Mary Badham, who played "Scout" Finch in the beloved film version of Harper Lee's novel "To Kill a Mockingbird," will appear in person to answer audience questions after a 50th anniversary screening of this landmark movie. Gregory Peck stars in the film, winning an Oscar for his iconic portrayal of widowed Alabama lawyer Atticus Finch, whose two young children witness prejudice and racial hatred firsthand when he defends an innocent black man in an inflammatory rape case. For her indelible performance, 10-year-old Badham was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress -- the youngest nominee in that category up to that time. (Ironically, she lost to another child performer, 16-year-old Patty Duke in "The Miracle Worker.") 35mm. Total program time approx. 3 hrs.
NOTE: $10 tickets for those age 25 & under (if seats are still available) will go on sale at 6 pm on Fri., Nov. 9 at the Cinematheque box office. Proof of age required. Cash/check only!
