Hello Everyone, If you still need to see WOMAN IN GOLD, a film that many of our regulars are absolutely loving, you only have until Thursday to see it at THE NEON. On Friday, we will open a new sci-fi film about artificial intelligence - one that seems all the more scary after having heard a story about a similar subject on NPR. EX MACHINA has been garnering rave reviews, and it certainly looks sophisticated and thought provoking...it also holds the record for the biggest opening of 2015 in larger markets. We have our fingers crossed that Dayton audiences are interested! TRUE STORY will … [Read more...] about EX MACHINA Opens Friday & Jewish Film Fest Starts This Weekend at THE NEON!

Hello Everyone, Earlier today, I made an announcement about WOMAN IN GOLD opening at THE NEON on April 1…that plan has changed. The Weinstein Company has made big changes to their release strategy for WOMAN IN GOLD. After confirming April 1 as its opening date for us, they have yanked it away (from us and numerous other cinemas across the country). At this time, we don't know if we will be able to play the film when it finally becomes available in our market. That said, I have made the appropriate changes to this week's newsletter below. Thanks for your understanding - this is very … [Read more...] about UPDATE – MOMMY and IT FOLLOWS Are Opening at THE NEON!

It does not seem all that long ago, but it has been over thirty years since craft beers began to emerge. The beer scene in America, on rocky ground since Prohibition, had fully bottomed out in the 1970’s and looked like it might stay there. Fortunately, Jimmy Carter relaxed federal brewing standards in 1978, allowing people who may have just been tinkering with brewing beer or making their own wine become a little more serious about it. The movement started off slowly, but exploded in the mid-1990’s, with breweries and brewpubs popping up everywhere. The beer drinking public was introduced to … [Read more...] about An Evening of Beer Education with Joshua Bernstein
There is a reason people love brunch on the weekends. It is a nice, long, leisurely meal with friends and family. All of the best food options are there, from Eggs Benedict to thick burgers, Belgian waffles to savory paninis, every food option you can think of is available. To top it all off, it is perfectly acceptable to have a few cocktails with the meal, either as a way to kick off the day or to shake off the night before. Brunch is not a meal as much as it is an event, and one of the long running stars of brunch is the classic Bloody Mary. It is a hearty cocktail to anchor this event. Much … [Read more...] about Seeking The Greatest Bloody Mary in Dayton – The Bloody Mary Showdown

By the time Dayton’s next free First Friday event hits the streets of downtown, Halloween will be over — but lots of people will still be costuming up. That’s because the Nov. 1 First Friday, which will take place from 5 to 10 p.m., includes the second annual Dia de los Muertos Parade. The event is based on the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead, during which friends and family gather to celebrate loved ones who have passed.
