Join the Dreamland Theater and "Mister Rogers & Me" Director Benjamin Wagner for this special, one-time benefit screening and Q&A.  Fred Rogers summered in a modest house on the edge of Nantucket. Wagner's mother rented the tiny cottage next door. So Mister Rogers really was his neighbor. In his award-winning documentary (which premiered at the Nantucket Film Festival), Wagner explores Rogers' enduring legacy through interviews with media luminaries and real world neighbors including Tim Russert, Susan Stamberg, Linda Ellerbee and Beverly Hall. A brief Q&A will follow. Proceeds will benefit the Nantucket Dreamland and Fred Rogers Library.
