The Magic Lantern Cinema is hosting a special showing of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” marking the classic film’s 60th anniversary.

The showing will be at 4:10 and 7:10 tonight—Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Screen legend Gregory Peck stars as courageous Southern lawyer Atticus Finch in an Academy Award-winning performance that the American Film Institute hailed as “the Greatest Movie Hero of all Time.”

The movie itself is based on Harper Lee’s 1960 Pulitzer Prize-winning coming-of-age novel that explores the consequences of racism and prejudice, probing whether people are essentially good or evil.

It revolves around a Black man who is false accused of raping a White woman. Finch agrees to defend the man despite a threatened lynching. Finch’s children, meanwhile, are involved in their own bout of prejudice with a reclusive neighbor named Boo.

A story about innocence, strength and conviction, the movie was nominated for eight Academy Awards.

The screening will include insight from Turner Classic Movies.

DO YOU KNOW WHY ATTICUS FINCH TOLD HIS CHILDREN IT’S A SIN TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD?

Because birds are innocent and harmless.
