A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Movie

Join WIPB for a private premiere of A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD before it opens nationwide!

This highly-anticipated film is based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers (portrayed by award-winning actor Tom Hanks) and journalist Tom Junod (played by Matthew Rhys). It’s a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, as the writer overcomes his skepticism about Mister Rogers, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.

Be among the first to see the movie – five days before its release!
