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).
