“To Kill a Mockingbird” will be featured at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2, at the Waupaca Area Public Library.
The film is part of the library’s First Thursday Film Series and the concluding event in the library’s “Waupaca Reads Mockingbird” program that has been running since August at venues around the area.
Dr. Jack Rhodes will introduce the film with comments about its director, cast and history.
The 1962 movie, based on the best-selling novel by Harper Lee, won Academy Awards for Gregory Peck as Best Actor and for the playwright Horton Foote for his book-to-screen adaptation of the novel. Directed by Robert Mulligan, the movie also features strong performances by child actors Mary Badham and Philip Alford, as well as Frank Overton, John Megna, and Rosemary Murphy.
Free popcorn, sodas, and theater treats will be provided. Reservations are not needed, and the film series is free and open to the public.
