We are very excited to offer two open caption screenings for Won't You Be My Neighbor
on July 11 and July 15.
What is open captioning? Open captions display text with dialogue like subtitles, and also include text describing other sounds in the production, such as laughter and the type of music playing. They also note who is speaking for off-screen dialogue. Open captions are designed to make it easier for viewers who are deaf or hard of hearing to enjoy the film.
We'll also have a sign language interpreter signing our projectionist's intro to each film.
About the film:
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
"Behind that facade of nice, it turns
out, there was mostly even more nice -- albeit, buoyed by a serious
commitment to educational TV." (Sara Stewart, New York Post)
