Hello Everyone, If you still need to see CITY OF GOLD, it won't be at THE NEON much longer. It will only screen for one matinee per day over the weekend. On Friday, we will open a film that many of you will adore - THE MEDDLER - starring Susan Sarandon, Rose Byrne and a great supporting performance by J.K. Simmons. SING STREET is going to stick around for one more week! (If you've already seen this gem, please help us spread the word!) Synopsis for THE MEDDLER: "With a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, Marnie … [Read more...] about Susan Sarandon in THE MEDDLER, SING STREET Continues + MADONNA at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, I just got back from a short, revitalizing vacation, and we're ready to tackle the next several weeks (which are currently overbooked). If you still need to see MILES AHEAD or A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING, you only have until Thursday to see them at THE NEON. Though audiences are loving SING STREET, I'm sad to say that it didn't perform nearly as well as I had hoped. Though it will stick around, it won't be here for long. On Friday, we will open 2 films that will likely only play for one week. First is a film that foodies and doc lovers will devour - CITY OF GOLD. Second is a … [Read more...] about 2 New Gems – CITY OF GOLD & KRISHA – Open Friday + Madonna’s TRUTH OR DARE Turns 25!
Hello Everyone, We had a really nice weekend at THE NEON. Folks in the packed house on Saturday night really loved the screening of PURPLE RAIN...so we're bringing it back one more time this Saturday at 10pm (last week's screening sold out, and numerous people were disappointed not to get tickets). In addition to holding both MILES AHEAD and A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING, we're opening a brand new film that is currently rated "97% Fresh" on rottentomatoes - SING STREET. This charming, uplifting and funny film is a complete gem, and it's from John Carney - director of ONCE. Synopsis for SING … [Read more...] about Audiences & Critics Love SING STREET – Opening Friday at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, We're cleaning house this week! On Friday, we will start two brand new films. First is Don Cheadle's MILES AHEAD. This film was shot in Cincinnati and Dayton, and many filmmakers and actors from the region participated in the production (I even had the privilege of being an extra for a day back in 2014). In addition, we'll open A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING - starring Tom Hanks. Dayton is currently quite excited about Hanks and his attachment to Wright State University. Interestingly, Stuart McDowell of WSU visited Hanks on the set of HOLOGRAM FOR A KING in Berlin. It was during … [Read more...] about Tom Hanks Fever + Cincinnati & Dayton’s MILES AHEAD at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, Many thanks to everyone who came out to see HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS this weekend. The response was terrific, and DORIS will certainly stick around.

On Friday, we will open the new Hank Williams biopic - I SAW THE LIGHT - featuring an incredible central performance by Tom Hiddleston. Synopsis for I SAW THE LIGHT: "I SAW THE LIGHT tells the story of the iconic, tormented … [Read more...] about Sally Field’s DORIS Soars! Hank Williams Biopic Opens Friday at THE NEON!

Hello Everyone, We just opened a documentary that is insightful, optimistic and terribly funny - Michael Moore's WHERE TO INVADE NEXT. Knowing Moore's work, you might look at the title and feel as though you already know where this film is going...but it's actually quite a different tone (more below). In addition, we're holding ANOMALISA as well as the OSCAR NOMINATED SHORTS (we've even brought back the documentaries for a few screenings). On February 19, we will open the new highly-anticipated Maggie Smith film - THE LADY IN THE VAN. Synopsis for WHERE TO INVADE NEXT: "WHERE TO INVADE … [Read more...] about New Michael Moore Film Now Playing at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, What a fantastic weekend! Many thanks to everyone who came out for CAROL at THE NEON! This stunning film surpassed the national average for us and has already reached "hit status" in our books. Don't forget that your ticket stub to CAROL gets you 50% off admission to America's Packard Museum - just a few blocks away. We're holding everything we've got (CAROL, THE DANISH GIRL and TRUMBO), and we're adding a couple more films to the line-up. First off, we're bringing a documentary that has received several requests - but it will only play for a handful of screenings - PEGGY … [Read more...] about CAROL Soars at THE NEON!

Hello Everyone, Today was my last day of screenings, and even though I feel like I've been away for months, I'm actually a little sad to be packing my bags. There are several films I didn't get a chance to see, and every year I think I'm going to take part more in the industry activities (indiewire talks, a variety of lectures, etc.) - but I don't. I just end up cramming in movies. First off today, I saw STONEWALL, directed by Roland Emmerich. This film was lambasted before anyone saw it. Criticism soared across the web based only on the trailer, and I must admit that I went into … [Read more...] about TIFF 2015 Day #9 – My Final Day!
