    Was this direct to video or was it in the theater?

    In theaters, Warren.

    My experience was posted HERE.

    Ron: This is a link to a DVD of the documentary. I've read that a Blu-ray is apparently coming...but I'm not seeing any evidence of it yet. Amazon has a place-holder, but no listing.

    I've been checking regularly for the Blu-ray to appear on Amazon, but nothing yet.

    It's been playing for six weeks and has made nearly $20 million. It's currently at my local art house theater (currently in about 700 theaters).

    Saw it in the theater about a month ago and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Very much recommended.

    It even made it to WV, which doesn't happen too often for documentaries. My 14 year-old son, who was very young when the show was in its last reruns on PBS, went to go see it earlier this week and felt the need to call me to tell me how good he thought it was. He was 100% moved by it.

    Battlebeast, the film has opened in Canada as well but for some unknown reason hasn't met with the same response as the United States, despite the fact that most Canadians know who Mr Rogers was. In most of the cities it opened in, it was gone in two weeks.

    Cineplex in Canada has a stupid monopoly on cinema, so they don’t play a lot
    Of art-house type films.

    I’ll have to look and see if it’s playing in Edmonton, but again, a lot of great movies (I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS, 127 HOURS) didn’t get played.

    This annoys the hell out of me. The US has 17,000 theatre chains... we have two.

    Thanks for letting me know this is only the documentary. I will keep an eye out for the theatrical release.

    I'm confused. The theatrical release isn't considered a documentary? What is this if it isn't the one directed by Morgan Neville?

    What does that mean?

    It's a documentary that got a theatrical release.

    Are you confusing this theatrical documentary with the upcoming Tom Hanks biopic?

    My point, earlier, Ron was that the link you posted in the OP is to a DVD release (even though the thread title specifies a Blu release). Amazon hasn't posted a page for a Blu release yet.

    This is definitely the release of Morgan Neville's documentary on Fred Rogers that has been receiving great acclaim in cinemas across the US this summer.

    Right, I think it's only a DVD release as I couldn't find any indication there is a Blu-ray release.

    As luck would have it, the Oldest theater in Edmonton (1915) is showing it for the last time in about 3 minutes, So I’m going to see it! Yay!

    I saw it. BEAUTIFUL. I got misty eyed.

    The world needs more Mr. Rogers and a lot less everything else.

    Not sure what the issue is with Amazon on this, because it seems pretty clear that there WILL be a Blu release of this title.

    Best Buy now has a pre-order link with artwork posted on its site (for $19.99).

    As I noted up in Post #3 of this thread, this is highly recommended by me for ANYONE who feels any affection for Fred Rogers and his work.
