Hello Everyone, The response to STILL ALICE was really terrific this weekend. Most customers agree that Julianne Moore's performance is honest and beautifully done...and that she will deserve the Academy Award this Sunday. STILL ALICE will stick around, and on Friday, we will open a contender for this year's "Best Foreign Film" Oscar - TIMBUKTU - the first time a film from Mauritania has ever received a nomination. The last day for TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT will be Thursday, Feb. 19. MR. TURNER is slated to open on Feb. 27 and THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is set to open on March … [Read more...] about Oscar Nominee TIMBUKTU Opens & FREE Oscar Party Details at THE NEON!

Hello Everyone, WILD was a big success over the weekend. Many thanks to all of you who came down to support it at THE NEON. It will be sticking around through the end of the year. We're pretty excited for what we hope will be our next big film - THE IMITATION GAME - opening this Thursday. This film about Alan Turing and the breaking of the Enigma Codes during WWII has been nominated for 5 Golden Globe Awards including "Best Picture." (In addition to already winning the "Audience Choice Award" in Toronto, it has also garnered lots of recognition from critics this season.) Benedict … [Read more...] about Best Picture Nominee THE IMITATION GAME Opens Thursday at THE NEON! WILD a Big Success!
Hello Everyone, We're going to end the year at THE NEON with some very high profile films. On Friday, we will open WILD - the new film based on the #1 Bestseller by Cheryl Strayed. I saw this film in Toronto, and I immediately knew that Witherspoon would receive nominations galore for this role. She's a shoe-in for an Oscar nomination! Next Thursday (Dec. 25), we will open THE IMITATION GAME - a film that was on the top of the list to see in Toronto. This is one that will undoubtedly get a "Best Picture" nomination. It's a really terrific film, and I know Daytonians are going to love … [Read more...] about WILD – Starring Reese Witherspoon – Opens Friday + More About IMITATION GAME, TOMMY LEE JONES Yogananda & More
Hello DaytonMostMetro Fans, I've got good news. WHIPLASH and BIRDMAN will be able to share a screen starting this Wednesday. That said, if you need to see either of these films, I'd suggest hurrying down. They may not last more than one more week. Tomorrow (Wed, Nov. 26), we will open a film that I know many of you will embrace - THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING. When I saw this film at the World Premiere in Toronto, the auditorium was packed with stars who were anxious to see the film - including Jon Stewart, Julie Taymor and Andrew Garfield. The standing ovation was remarkable, and hearing Eddie … [Read more...] about Oscar Hopeful THEORY OF EVERYTHING Opens at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, I'm happy to report that BIRDMAN continues to bring in nice crowds, thus it will be sticking around. However, despite incredible reviews, WHIPLASH didn't perform quite as well as we had hoped. That said, we're holding it for another weekend. At this point, we're not sure if it will stick around beyond Tuesday...we need to wait for another weekend to see if we can hold it any longer. I'd suggest hurrying down if you still need to see this film. On Wednesday of next week (the day before Thanksgiving), we will open one of my absolute favorites from this year's Toronto … [Read more...] about Amazing Line-Up at THE NEON!

Hello Everyone, We had a really good weekend with BIRDMAN and ST. VINCENT - our best weekend in the past few months. Thanks to everyone who came out! If you still need to see ST. VINCENT, Thursday will be your last chance to see it at THE NEON. For remaining showtimes, please visit our website at www.neonmovies.com On Friday, we will open a film that has garnered great reviews from critics and audiences alike - WHIPLASH. You don't have to take my word for it. Take a look at all the great reviews on the film's Rottentomatoes page. Synopsis for WHIPLASH: "Andrew Neyman is an ambitious … [Read more...] about WHIPLASH – Approved By Critics & Audiences Alike – Opens Friday at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, Audiences are loving all three of our current attractions, but if you still need to see PRIDE or MY OLD LADY, you'll need to move quickly. PRIDE will screen for the last time tonight (Wednesday) and MY OLD LADY will screen for the last time on Thursday afternoon. ST. VINCENT is sticking around. If you need a refresher about any of our current films, please visit our website at www.neonmovies.com On Friday, we're excited to open BIRDMAN - a film by the brilliant Mexican director Alejandro G. Inarritu, director of AMORES PERROS, 21 GRAMS, BABEL and BIUTIFUL. This new film, … [Read more...] about BIRDMAN (with Amazing Cast & Stellar Reviews) Opens Friday at THE NEON!
Sunday, September 7, 2014 Hello Again. Last night was a late night again…so this morning started with a drag…but I don't regret staying out until 2:00. I had dinner with an old friend (I met Bill in line for Almodovar's TALK TO HER back in 2002) and then met a couple other friends for cocktails. It was a great night. This morning started in line like all the other mornings. I managed to get the tickets I want for Tuesday public screenings (including WILD - the buzz for Reese Witherspoon is quite big), and I was then off to my first P&I screening. TOUR DE FORCE was first. … [Read more...] about TIFF 2014 – Day #4
Hello Everyone. Jonathan from THE NEON here. After a rather hideous day of travel (including an unexpected, long stop in Chicago due to passport issues (my own fault)), I finally made it to Toronto. As of right now, I'm about a 1/2 day behind. It's 7:30am, and I'm usually in line for tickets. That said, I don't yet have my credentials (which is why I wanted to arrive yesterday afternoon)…so I have to wait for a different office to open at 9am (I'm first in line - as I'm determined to get back on track as soon as possible). Having only briefly looked at the catalog on-line, I still … [Read more...] about TIFF (The Toronto International Film Festival) Starts Today!
