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.

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, Many thanks to everyone who has come out and supported AMY. Documentaries can be a tough sell, but we had several well attended screenings this past weekend. AMY will stick around for another week. On Friday, we will open a sex comedy that was a hit at this year's Sundance Film Festival - THE OVERNIGHT (this will likely be a one-week only engagement). We will also hold ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL for one more week...if you haven't given this film a chance yet, I urge you to do so.

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!
Hello Everyone, Even though WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS and THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL are performing well enough to stick around, we're still going to throw something new into the mix for a handful of screenings.

For this week's remaining showtimes (they're different than the upcoming week - which are listed below), please visit our website at www.neonmovies.com Synopsis for LEVIATHAN: "Kolia lives in a small town … [Read more...] about Golden Globe Winner LEVIATHAN Opens March 20th at THE NEON!
