WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR now at YES!
From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), Won't You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America's favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and ess imagination.
Special thanks to Columbus Area Arts Council, the Indiana Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts for sponsoring this moving film at YES Cinema.
The film is Rated PG-13 for some thematic elements and language.
One year later, COLUMBUS returns to YES Cinema - and now with deleted scenes!
COLUMBUS is a film that rewards a person with repeated viewings. The film can be slyly mysterious from a structural standpoint, both with respect to the plot’s elisions and several cuts that demand that viewers fill in the blanks. The movie leaves quite a bit to the eye of the beholder, but it’s always worth looking at.
Bonus features include a unique short film by Kogonada about the city of Columbus and the building that changed its destiny and deleted movie scenes from locales such as the Crump Theatre and Hamilton Community Center Ice Arena.
