WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? - In Person Screenings at THE NEON, Dayton's independent, non-profit, art house cinema.
Running Time: 1 Hr 35 Min
Showtimes: Fri-Thu (June 26-July 2) 3:00, 7:30
In the summer of 2018, we opened this quiet and lovely film...and it quickly skyrocketed to becoming our biggest hit of the year and our highest grossing documentary of all time at THE NEON. We're bringing it back...because we need Mr. Roger's wisdom and compassion more than ever. Tickets for the "Welcome Back Week" are just $5 each. "For over thirty years, Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer was beamed daily into homes across America. In his beloved television program, MISTER ROGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD, Fred 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. Though he may be best known today as a soft-spoken, cardigan-wearing children's television host, in reality, Fred Rogers' career represents a sustained attempt to present a coherent, beneficent view about how we should best speak to children about important matters and how television could be used as a positive force in our society."
