On Sunday, March 17th at 4 pm, The Grand partners with MPBN to bring a free screening on the giant Coastal Eye Care Screen of a documentary portrait of children’s television legend Fred Rogers, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (“20 Feet from Stardom”), “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” takes an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination. Join in the fun of celebrating both Mr. Rogers and St. Patrick Day’s by wearing a green cardigan- however any cardigan will honor the great man! With Yo Yo Ma and David Newell. (2018. US. 1 hr, 34 min. Directed by Morgan Neville. PG-13.) Tickets for this General Admission presentation are free.
