Notwithstanding the controversial publication of Harper Lee's Go Tell a Watchman in 2015, Atticus Finch remains one of the most beloved characters in American letters. Brought to life by Gregory Peck in Robert Mulligan's 1962 drama To Kill a Mockingbird, the gracefully reserved, morally upright Southern lawyer can still inspire in an age of superheroes. Fathom Events brings back this masterpiece for two shows this week as part of its TCM Big Screen Classics series. Primetime host Ben Mankiewicz will bookend the film with his commentary. Laemmle Ahrya Fine Arts Theatre, 8556 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills; Mon., March 24, 1 p.m.; $13. (310) 478-3836, laemmle.com.
