Won't You Be My Neighbor | Screening Events

‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor?’ Screening Events: March 20, April 13

Join WNED-TV for special, free screenings of “Won't You Be My Neighbor,” the 2018 award winning documentary about Mister Fred Rogers. This Morgan Neville documentary shows us who Mister Rogers was, outside of the show and without the zip-up cardigans. In this age when so many of our heroes aren't who we thought they were, Mister Rogers truly was.

It’s Mister Rogers’ birthday and we want to celebrate with you! Watch this award-winning documentary about your favorite neighbor with your neighbors at Spire Theater & Banquet Facilities, 317 E. 3rd St. at 5:30pm Wednesday, March 20.

Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Sweater DriveIn the spirit of being good neighbors, donations of gently used sweaters are being accepted at the event. The sweaters will be cleaned by our friends at Colvin Cleaners and then donated to area shelters so your neighbors can be warmed by your kindness.
