Won't You Be My Neighbor?

One of the most awaited films of the season and a sensation on the festival circuit, where it played to surprised and adoring audiences—whether they watched Mr. Rogers Neighborhood or not—with nary a dry-eye in the house. The New York Times’ AO Scott calls Won’t You Be My Neighbor? “a gift…unapologetically admiring and intellectually rigorous”. It’s a beautiful exploration of Fred Rogers’ singularly powerful legacy, built over nearly half a century with millions of viewers and his deceptively simple message of kindness and decency, which strikes a particularly resonant chord in the present moment.  Acclaimed Director Morgan Neville, who also made the rousing 20 Feet From Stardom, and the brilliant Best of Enemies, has crafted another powerful and entertaining documentary.

Although not an official JBFC Kids film, Won’t You Be My Neighbor is recommended for ages 10 and up by Common Sense Media.

Tickets: $9 (members), $14 (nonmembers)
