Hello Dayton Most Metro! We're moving along in a big way this weekend. If you still need to see LA LA LAND - now the highest grossing film in THE NEON's history - Thursday will be your last chance to catch it with us. If you still need to see 20TH CENTURY WOMEN, Sunday will be your last chance to catch this gem at THE NEON. On Friday, we will open two very different films that have something in common. JACKIE and ELLE both have lead performances that have been nominated for "Best Actress" at this year's Academy Awards. Natalie Portman gives an incredible performance as Jackie Kennedy - one … [Read more...] about 2 New Films, 2 “Best Actresses” at THE NEON
Hello Most Metro! We were all set to move forward with JACKIE this weekend, but the execs at Lionsgate (the distributor for LA LA LAND) were insistent that we hold their hit for another week...and with good reasons. 1) LA LA LAND is still performing well. 2) LA LA LAND just scored the highest number of Oscar nominations ever received - 14 in all (tying with ALL ABOUT EVE and TITANIC). 3) In just under 4 weeks, LA LA LAND has become our #2 "Highest Grossing Film Ever" at THE NEON. Over the course of this upcoming weekend, it will likely move into the #1 spot! All that said, we will hold both … [Read more...] about Numerous Oscar Nominations for Films at THE NEON

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, Thanks for coming back! Today was my last day during this trip when I have to wake up before 6am! I saw three more films (which takes me to 24 total), and I had a nice dinner. Though there was an invitation to meet up for late drinks, I had to turn it down. I'm simply too tired and getting more than 4 hours of sleep sounds much better. My first film of the day was PATERSON, by Jim Jarmusch - who has a cult-like following.
