Hello Everyone, In just under 11 days, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL became our #7 highest grossing film at THE NEON. All films above it played for a minimum of 6 weeks to reach those kind of numbers. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and support - it has been a wonderful ride so far. It goes without saying that we will continue our run of BUDAPEST HOTEL. That said, it will now play on just one screen. Starting Friday, we will open a documentary that many of you have been eager to see - TIM'S VERMEER. Synopsis for TIM'S VERMEER: "Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, (Video Toaster, … [Read more...] about TIM’S VERMEER Opens and GRAND BUDAPEST Holds at THE NEON!

Wes Anderson's new film has been breaking box office records across the country, and now THE NEON gets to have the local exclusive opening of THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL.

Hello! Yesterday ended up being not as productive as I had planned. I only saw 3 films in their entirety...and the festival is officially starting to wear me out. The early morning line-up is dwindling. Some industry folks have already left town, and some of this drop-off is due merely to communal exhaustion.

Hello Everyone, I saw 2 final films today...which took my final count to 29 full screenings (there were 3 partial screenings, too). First off, I saw a lovely new adaptation of GREAT EXPECTATIONS by Mike Newell (director of ENCHANTED APRIL, FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL, and a whole lot more). This adaptation, though clearly condensed in order to be told in 2 hours, is an old-school, literal adaptation with lovely photography, great costumes and a wonderful score. The cast is wonderful - Ralph Fiennes as Magwitch, Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Havisham and Jeremy Irvine as "older" Pip (he … [Read more...] about Toronto Film Fest – Day #9
