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).
