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. To put that in perspective, every other film in our Top 10 played at THE NEON for at least six weeks...so LA LA LAND has performed exceptionally well. Many thanks to everyone who has helped to make the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 such a success. This weekend, we are holding both LA LA LAND and MANCHESTER BY THE SEA - both of which are certain to be "Best Picture" contenders during this year's Oscar Race. To read about everything … [Read more...] about LA LA LAND is Huge Hit at THE NEON!
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. In addition, THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY had a couple sell-outs over the weekend - it's a film that has incredible word-of-mouth business. And then there's WEINER - a documentary like you've never seen before. We will keep all three films for another week, and we'll add a brand new film into the mix - DARK HORSE. This delightful documentary is currently rated "97% Fresh" on … [Read more...] about Beloved DARK HORSE Opens Friday at THE NEON! WEINER and MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY Continue!
Hello Everyone, If you still need to see CITY OF GOLD, it won't be at THE NEON much longer. It will only screen for one matinee per day over the weekend. On Friday, we will open a film that many of you will adore - THE MEDDLER - starring Susan Sarandon, Rose Byrne and a great supporting performance by J.K. Simmons. SING STREET is going to stick around for one more week! (If you've already seen this gem, please help us spread the word!) Synopsis for THE MEDDLER: "With a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, Marnie … [Read more...] about Susan Sarandon in THE MEDDLER, SING STREET Continues + MADONNA at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, I just got back from a short, revitalizing vacation, and we're ready to tackle the next several weeks (which are currently overbooked). If you still need to see MILES AHEAD or A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING, you only have until Thursday to see them at THE NEON. Though audiences are loving SING STREET, I'm sad to say that it didn't perform nearly as well as I had hoped. Though it will stick around, it won't be here for long. On Friday, we will open 2 films that will likely only play for one week. First is a film that foodies and doc lovers will devour - CITY OF GOLD. Second is a … [Read more...] about 2 New Gems – CITY OF GOLD & KRISHA – Open Friday + Madonna’s TRUTH OR DARE Turns 25!
Hello Everyone, We're cleaning house this week! On Friday, we will start two brand new films. First is Don Cheadle's MILES AHEAD. This film was shot in Cincinnati and Dayton, and many filmmakers and actors from the region participated in the production (I even had the privilege of being an extra for a day back in 2014). In addition, we'll open A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING - starring Tom Hanks. Dayton is currently quite excited about Hanks and his attachment to Wright State University. Interestingly, Stuart McDowell of WSU visited Hanks on the set of HOLOGRAM FOR A KING in Berlin. It was during … [Read more...] about Tom Hanks Fever + Cincinnati & Dayton’s MILES AHEAD at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, As planned, we're moving forward this weekend with a film that many of you are anticipating. The trailer for I'LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS has been causing a lot of laughs and even some swoons (I had no idea that Sam Elliott had such a fan base)! LOVE & MERCY was a hit this weekend, and it will stick around. If you still need to see FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD or LAMBERT AND STAMP, you only have until Thursday to catch them at THE NEON. For this week's remaining showtimes (they're different than the upcoming week - which are listed below), please visit our website at … [Read more...] about I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS With Blythe Danner & Sam Elliott Opens at THE NEON
Hello Everyone, I'm sad to report that TIMBUKTU did not fare very well for us at THE NEON. Though it was an award winner at Cannes and it nearly swept the Cesar Awards last week (the "French Oscars" - it won 7 awards including "Best Picture"), today (Feb. 25) will be your last chance to catch it at THE NEON. On Friday, we will open a film that many art enthusiasts have been anxious to see - MR. TURNER. We'll also hold onto the film that just garnered Julianne Moore her first Oscar - STILL ALICE. Remaining showtimes for this week are available on our website - www.neonmovies.com. Synopsis … [Read more...] about MR. TURNER Opens and Fun MARIGOLD HOTEL News at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, We had a very solid weekend with BOYHOOD. Many thanks to all of you who came out to support it. (We even had quite a few folks from Cincinnati - the film isn't playing that market yet!) We will hold BOYHOOD, but we need to let go of IDA. If you still need to see this marvelous film, Thursday will be your last chance. On Friday, we will open I ORIGINS - a new film from the director of ANOTHER EARTH. (For this week's remaining showtimes, visit our website at www.neonmovies.com) Synopsis for I ORIGINS: ONE WEEK ONLY! "I ORIGINS, the second feature film from writer and … [Read more...] about I ORIGINS Opens & BOYHOOD Continues at THE NEON!
