Fred Rogers and David Newell, as Speedy Delivery's Mr. McFeely, stand on the front porch set while filming an episode of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. Thursday is WQED 'Cardigan Day' to honor the late Fred Rogers. The station will set up four locations with sweaters where fans can take a selfie and post it to social media with the hashtag #cardiganday and #sweaterweather.

Pick out your favorite sweater and slip on your most comfortable sneakers for the neighborhood premiere of the long-awaited Fred Rogers documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”

Hollywood Theater in Dormont, 1449 Potomac Ave., is showing the film free at 7 p.m. June 5 before it will be in theaters nationwide on June 8.

Former Academy Award winning filmmaker Morgan Neville takes an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor – Fred Rogers. It’s an illuminating portrait of the man behind the cardigan.

Guests are required to wear a sweater (in tribute to Rogers, whose wardrobe consisted of sweaters) and admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.

The evening will begin with a group sing-a-long of “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” led by David Newell (Mr. McFeely from Rogers’ show).

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
