Won’t you be my Neighbor?
Documentary in English with Spanish subtitles (2018, USA).
Appropriate for Families.
Pre-show puppet show of Who Took the Cookies from the Cookie Jar by WonderSpark Puppets at 7:30 pm.
Won’t You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Fred Rogers. The documentary tells the story of a soft-spoken minister, puppeteer, writer and producer whose show was beamed daily into homes across America for more than 30 years. In his beloved television program, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Rogers and his cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues in a simple, direct fashion. There hadn’t been anything like Mr. Rogers on television before, and there hasn’t been since.
