Me and Earl and The Dying Girl **Ticket Giveaway**

earl

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL is the uniquely funny, moving story of Greg (Thomas Mann), a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoiding deeper relationships as a survival strategy for navigating the social minefield that is teenage life.  He even describes his constant companion Earl (RJ Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a 'co-worker’ than a best friend. But when Greg’s mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Olivia Cooke) – … [Read more...]

GreyGardens_theatricalposter_small

Hello Everyone, Over the past 14 years that I've been at THE NEON, THE D TRAIN ranks as one of the biggest box office disappointments we've ever had. We had to lose it quickly. Today, we opened a new film with Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart - CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA. (Stewart became the first American to ever win a Cesar award for her role in this film. The Cesar Awards are France's equivalent to our Academy Awards.) In addition, we will open the 40th Anniversary Restoration of GREY GARDENS - the documentary that became the basis for numerous books, an HBO narrative film and even a … [Read more...]



Summer Flicks Series Returns to Victoria Theatre

images-4

“Finding good quality 35mm prints of films for the Victoria’s 35mm projector can be challenging, but it does give you that authentic pre-digital film experience that is so unique. This year we were able to secure every film in 35mm, which is quite a feat. And, we are bringing back last year’s family weekday matinees with some wonderful family films and Reel Late at the Vic channels the nostalgia of the Victoria Theatre’s days as a popular movie house. You don’t want to miss the fun downtown this summer!”
