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 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.

Hello Everyone! Thanksgiving weekend was bustling at THE NEON. Many thanks to everyone who came out to support our two award-winning films.

Hello Everyone, We had a great holiday weekend at THE NEON. Thanks to everyone who came out. Though critics had luke-warm reviews of OUR KIND OF TRAITOR, many of our regulars truly enjoyed the film.
