  Our March Movie Nite is CANCELLED.  We will show the planned movie: "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" at a Later Date


A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is a 2019 American biographical drama film that was inspired by the 1998 article “Can You Say ... Hero?” published in Esquire. The film stars Tom Hanks, Matthew Rhys, Susan Kelechi Watson, and Chris Cooper. It depicts Lloyd Vogel (Rhys), a journalist for Esquire who is assigned to profile beloved television icon Fred Rogers (Hanks).

The film received significant praise from critics for Hanks' and Rhys' performances, Heller's direction, and the heart-warming messages, and grossed $66.7 million worldwide. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood was chosen by Time magazine as one of the ten best films of the year


For his performance, Hanks was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, Critics' Choice, Screen Actors Guild Awards.

In 1998, Lloyd Vogel is an Esquire journalist known for his cynical writing style. Lloyd's editor assigns him to interview children's television presenter Fred Rogers for an article about heroes, but Lloyd feels the assignment is beneath him. He travels to the WQED studio in Pittsburgh to interview Rogers. Determined to expose Rogers' friendly persona as an act, Lloyd watches several episodes of Rogers' show but is unable to discern anything.
