Subscribe To President Obama To Introduce To Kill A Mockingbird On USA This Saturday Updates
Earlier this year, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of To Kill a Mockingbird, the classic film was released on blu-ray. And this Saturday night, USA will air the digitally remastered movie. That in itself is worth tuning in for, but there’s a bonus to the broadcast, as President Obama is set to introduce the movie.

USA announced the exclusive airing of To Kill a Mockingbird on Saturday, April 7 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT. Not only will this be the first national broadcast of the restored and digitally remastered cut of the classic film, which first released back in 1962, but the broadcast will also feature a special introduction from President Barack Obama.

Based on a novel by Harper Lee, To Kill a Mocking Bird stars Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch, a single father and attorney who ends up representing a black man on trial for the sexual assault of a white woman. Racial tolerance is among the themes of the story, which also tackles loss of innocence in its focus on Atticus’ children Jem and Scout. It should be interesting to hear what President Obama has to say about the film when it airs this Saturday night on USA. In the meantime, you can read our review of the recently released blu-ray for the movie here.
