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, 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.

Hello Everyone, If you've liked films like BILLY ELLIOT and THE FULL MONTY, I'm pretty certain you're going to absolutely love PRIDE. The standing ovation at the screening I attended in Toronto was invigorating, and the film is more than just warm and charming - it's inspiring. I hope you'll come and support it this weekend. In addition to PRIDE, we will open the new Bill Murray comedy - ST. VINCENT. This film was also a crowd-pleaser when I saw it in Toronto, and I think Dayton audiences will like it as well. If you still need to see THE SKELETON TWINS, LOVE IS STRANGE, MY OLD LADY or THE … [Read more...] about ST. VINCENT (Starring Bill Murray) & PRIDE (With Amazing British Cast) Start Friday at THE NEON!
Hello Everyone, Taking a cue from national trends, we didn't have the highest hopes for ALIVE INSIDE...but it's a film we believed in and hoped would find an audience. Unfortunately, those trends proved to be right in line with the film's performance in Dayton. That said, people who saw it can easily understand why this inspiring film won the audience award at Sundance. Unfortunately, Thursday was the last chance to see it at THE NEON. On Friday, we open a wonderful new film with two of the best male performances of the year - LOVE IS STRANGE. We will also hold onto the much-loved, darkly … [Read more...] about Critically Acclaimed LOVE IS STRANGE Opens at THE NEON!
