‘To Kill a Mockingbird’
Emmy award-winning actor Richard Thomas stars as Atticus Finch in the American Theatre Guild production of Aaron Sorkin’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” through Sunday, Nov. 19, at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC). Based on Harper Lee’s classic novel, the production includes Birmingham native Mary Badham as Mrs. Henry Dubose. At age 10, Badham received an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress in the 1962 film version for playing Jean Louise “Scout” Finch. The production contains racially explicit language and costuming, references of sexual abuse and brief gunfire audio. Tickets available through, and the BJCC ticket office.

‘Black Uniform’
The Montgomery Film Festival will highlight “Black Uniform,” a newly completed documentary directed by filmmaker Robert Darwell, featuring the voices of 12 Black veterans who served within the ranges of World War II to present day. Congressional Gold Medal recipient Romay Davis, a 104-year-old World War II veteran from Montgomery and the oldest living veteran of the “Six Triple Eight” all-Black female battalion, is scheduled to attend the film’s Alabama premiere Saturday, Nov. 18, at the Capri Theatre. There will be a Q&A following the screening.
