Hello Everyone! Thanksgiving weekend was bustling at THE NEON. Many thanks to everyone who came out to support our two award-winning films. Speaking of awards, we were very happy to read about MOONLIGHT cleaning up at the Gotham Awards this week (the first big awards of the season). Over the past two years, the Gotham Awards have predicted the Oscar for "Best Picture" (SPOTLIGHT and BIRDMAN)...thus we think MOONLIGHT will continue to be a major player this year. We will hold both LOVING and MOONLIGHT for another week. In addition, we have one more treat to rotate back into the mix - A … [Read more...] about MAN CALLED OVE Returns and LOVING & MOONLIGHT Stay at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, Once again, big changes are happening to our upcoming release dates. It was determined yesterday (by "the powers that be") that MANDELA won't open after all at THE NEON. We're quite disappointed by this, but the decision is out of our hands. That said, we're glad that we will be able to open two smaller gems between now and our next big titles on January 10. On Dec. 27, we plan to open KILL YOUR DARLINGS - a story about the early life of poet Allen Ginsberg (a brave choice for actor Daniel Radcliffe of the HARRY POTTER films). On Jan. 3, we plan to open BLUE IS THE WARMEST … [Read more...] about Big Date Changes – Coen Brothers Added to Upcoming NEON Engagements!
Hello Everyone, Distributors are playing with opening dates like crazy. Sometimes it works to our advantage, and sometimes it really changes everything. We got news on both sides of that fence today! Though AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY has now moved into January, I'm delighted to announce that we will open Alexander Payne's new film NEBRASKA this Friday. In addition, it looks like we'll now be able to open MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM on Dec. 25. If you still need to see DALLAS BUYERS CLUB, Thursday will be your last chance to catch it at THE NEON. PHILOMENA, which has had spectacular … [Read more...] about Alexander Payne’s NEBRASKA – Starring Bruce Dern – Opens Friday at THE NEON!

Hello Everyone, Everything we've got is leaving! If you still need to see A ROYAL AFFAIR or SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, hurry down. On Thursday (Valentine's Day) we'll begin our exclusive engagement of QUARTET (which I'm certain will delight so many of you). On Friday, we begin one of the absolute best reviewed films of 2012 - AMOUR. The Oscar-Nominated Shorts were a big success. Special thanks to all of you who came out and supported them. If at all possible (we're not certain yet), we will have encore screenings of these films next weekend (Feb. 22-24). Remaining showtimes for this week … [Read more...] about QUARTET and AMOUR Exclusively at THE NEON

Hello Everyone, HITCHCOCK and ANNA KARENINA are still performing well for us, so we're going to keep both...but we'll also add a new film into the mix for one week. On Friday, we will open SMASHED - the new film which just earned an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Synopsis for SMASHED: "A married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of alcohol gets their relationship put to the test when the wife decides to get sober."

Hello Everyone, This is a short & easy newsletter this week. We had another incredible weekend at THE NEON. People are really liking Woody Allen's latest film - TO ROME WITH LOVE (some people have been quite vocal about their disgust for the review that appeared in Dayton Daily...and some have said they like the film as much as MIDNIGHT IN PARIS). In addition, MOONRISE KINGDOM continues to draw big crowds. Thank you so much for your support of these films. (You can visit either official site by clicking the titles above.) Check out this fun "Behind the Scenes Clip." [yframe … [Read more...] about 2 Great Films, Another Great Weekend at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, Even though we're going to hold both of our current attractions - THE DESCENDANTS and MELANCHOLIA - we are going to open a new film on Friday. WEEKEND - which was the sold-out, closing film of this year's Downtown Dayton LGBT Film Festival - has been winning awards around the world. In addition, it's one of my favorite films of the year. Eric Hynes of the The Village Voice wrote, "Naturalistic without being ineloquent, heartfelt yet unsentimental, WEEKEND is the rarest of birds: a movie romance that rings true." David Edelstein of New York Magazine … [Read more...] about WEEKEND This Weekend at THE NEON
