An exploration of the life, lessons, and legacy of iconic children's television host, Fred Rogers.

Director: Morgan Neville
Stars: Joanne Rogers, Betty Aberlin, McColm Cephas Jr.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, PBS39 and ArtsQuest have teamed up to launch a drive to collect shoes to help those less fortunate around the globe. Fred Rogers Productions, producers of the beloved series, and Soles4Souls, a non-profit social enterprise that creates sustainable jobs and provides relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world, have partnered to provide a dynamic, community volunteer opportunity for PBS stations nationwide as part of their anniversary efforts. As fans of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood will recall, Fred Rogers opened every episode by changing out of his loafers into a pair of sneakers.

During the run of the new movie, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor,” from June 22 through July 8 at the ArtsQuest Center’s Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas, people can drop off gently used and new shoes at the cinema or at PBS39 studios during regular hours. To show their appreciation, ArtsQuest will provide a free cinema pass for every pair of shoes donated, and PBS39 will also provide a gift. The shoes that PBS39 and ArtsQuest collect will be delivered to Soles4Souls.
