Mark your calendars because WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? will be in select theaters on June 8th, 2018!
The Mister Rogers show was very dear to my heart as I grew up watching him daily after school. My favorite was when the train would go through the tunnel to the land of make-believe and he would visit the castle to see the king and queen.
One day around Christmas time we got a phone call from the actual Fred Rogers while making gingerbread houses at my aunt’s house. She donated so much money to PBS and received a prize of Mister Rogers calling to talk to us. He talked about our gingerbread houses we were making and what we wanted for Christmas. I still remember that phone call like it was yesterday and it’s something I’ll never forget.
I’m so excited to see this movie to learn more about the man that inspired us all and always left a positive impact on everyone, every single day. Are you ready to go back to your childhood? See it in theaters on June 8, 2018. Also, be sure to check the pop-up at next week’s CinemaCon, beginning tomorrow April 23rd, inside Caesar’s Palace by the Pisa Room in Las Vegas. How fun!!
