Winter came early to Chicago this year, which means you’ve probably already dug your coziest cardigan out of storage. If not, we’ve got the perfect excuse: We’re sponsoring an advance screening of the Fred Rogers biopic A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood, directed by Can You Ever Forgive Me’s Marielle Heller, and we’d like to invite you to see America’s dad Tom Hanks play this wholesome icon early and for free.

To claim one of 50 admit-two passes to see A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood on Wednesday, November 13 at the AMC River East (that’s 322 E. Illinois St.) at 7:00 PM, simply follow this link and enter some basic information. November 13 is also World Kindness Day, and if you bring a canned item with you to the screening, we’ll give you early admission as well as donating the item to Chicago nonprofit Care for Real. Who says kindness doesn’t pay off?
