From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), Won’t You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.

Join us for free community screenings of the acclaimed documentary film that looks back on the legacy of Fred (Mister) Rogers, focusing on his radical kindness. This is a special opportunity to celebrate kindness, our neighbors, and the power of our community. Thank you for being our neighbor!
