Words & Film Sunday Matinee at EMPL continues with a free presentation of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Sunday December 3rd, at 2pm.

Lloyd Vogel is tasked with creating a profile of Fred Rogers, the creator and star of the successful children’s program Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Although skeptical, he dutifully goes to the studio where his subject is filming his show, and soon enough, he is sitting down with him, asking him probing questions. However, Fred seems to have a different plan in mind. The interviewee suddenly becomes the interviewer, and he starts to help Lloyd in unexpected ways.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is based on journalist Tom Junod’s 1998 Esquire profile of Fred Rogers, and their resulting friendship. Directed by Marielle Heller, this film stars Tom Hanks, Matthew Rhys, Wendy Makkena, Enrico Colantoni, and Susan Kelechi Watson. This film is rated PG.

Admission is free. For more information, please visit, or call 570-421-0800 x317.
