Hello MostMetro, We're very excited at THE NEON. In less than two weeks, LA LA LAND has become our #5 highest grossing film of all time. To put that in perspective, every other film in our Top 10 played at THE NEON for at least six weeks...so LA LA LAND has performed exceptionally well. Many thanks to everyone who has helped to make the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 such a success. This weekend, we are holding both LA LA LAND and MANCHESTER BY THE SEA - both of which are certain to be "Best Picture" contenders during this year's Oscar Race. To read about everything … [Read more...] about LA LA LAND is Huge Hit 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, 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!

Hello DaytonMostMetro Fans, I've got good news. WHIPLASH and BIRDMAN will be able to share a screen starting this Wednesday. That said, if you need to see either of these films, I'd suggest hurrying down. They may not last more than one more week. Tomorrow (Wed, Nov. 26), we will open a film that I know many of you will embrace - THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING. When I saw this film at the World Premiere in Toronto, the auditorium was packed with stars who were anxious to see the film - including Jon Stewart, Julie Taymor and Andrew Garfield. The standing ovation was remarkable, and hearing Eddie … [Read more...] about Oscar Hopeful THEORY OF EVERYTHING Opens at THE NEON!
