Script to Screen: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Saturday, January 11 at 2:00pm to 5:00pm

Esteemed actor Tom Hanks brings cherished icon Mister Rogers back to the screen in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019), a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of Fred Rogers’ and journalist Tom Junod’s unlikely friendship. When he is tasked with profiling the children’s television pioneer, Junod (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys), a jaded magazine writer, must overcome his skepticism to learn about kindness, love, and forgiveness from America’s most beloved neighbor.
Screenwriter and executive producer Noah Harpster will join moderator Matt Ryan for a post-screening discussion.

This event is free but a reservation is recommended in order to guarantee a seat. Tickets will be released Thursday, January 2 at 11 a.m.
