This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first episode of MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD and as of late the show and Mister Rogers himself have been back in the spotlight.
Coming to select theaters June 8th will be the WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? documentary from director Morgan Neville. I grew up (as did most Americans) watching his show every weekday on PBS and I can’t wait to watch the movie that “takes an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers“.
For those of you in San Diego, it opens there on June 15th.
More information as well as the trailer and movie poster are courtesy of their press release.
Focus Features will release WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? in select theaters on June 8th, 2018
Story: 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.
