Won’t You Be My Neighbor? I consider myself quite a wrathful person. One time I came home in a bad mood, ripped all of the spoons out of my kitchen drawer, and threw them back into that same kitchen drawer, clang after spoony clang, until my rage was abated. And this documentary on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood still managed to reduce me to a teary, blubbering fool multiple times in a single sitting. What more is there to say about Fred Rogers? It’s a wonderful day in the neighborhood. 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 6. The Loft Cinema. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. Regular admission prices. Details here.
