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
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! We're going completely international this weekend with two exciting, new films - both of which we didn't think we'd be able to accommodate but many of you have been asking about.

Hello Everyone, We had a really nice weekend at THE NEON. Folks in the packed house on Saturday night really loved the screening of PURPLE RAIN...so we're bringing it back one more time this Saturday at 10pm (last week's screening sold out, and numerous people were disappointed not to get tickets). In addition to holding both MILES AHEAD and A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING, we're opening a brand new film that is currently rated "97% Fresh" on rottentomatoes - SING STREET. This charming, uplifting and funny film is a complete gem, and it's from John Carney - director of ONCE.

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).

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.
