Jan 18 2020 - 7:30pm A Beautiful Day in the NeighborhoodA Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

A timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks), he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America's most beloved neighbor.

“In an era that seems fatally mired in fear, anger and mistrust, A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD arrives as something more than a movie. It feels like an answered prayer.” - Washington Post.

“It invites us into Rogers’ philosophy that adults would be better people if they tried to remember what it was like to be children. The result is unexpected and unlike any film of its kind, and a testimony to Rogers’ enduring influence, too.” - Vox.

Rated PG for some strong thematic material, a brief fight, and some mild language, 109 mins.
