HORRORAMA 2014 Re-Haunts Englewood Cinema October 24th!

Horrorama2014_UPDATE

More legal than a fake purge and less appetizing than zombies on AMC, it’s that time of year for the 18th Annual Horrorama Movie Festival. Making more returns then Jason, Freddy and Michael the ‘Horror’ returns to the Englewood Cinemas at 320 W. National Road, Englewood, Ohio by Kmart on Friday Oct. 24th. Doors open and the pre-show festivities at 6:00 PM, and the flicks kick off around 7:00 PM.  Tickets are $10 in advance (at GameSwap Kettering and Englewood Cinema) or $12 day of show.

ST. VINCENT (Starring Bill Murray) & PRIDE (With Amazing British Cast) Start Friday at THE NEON!

St-Vincent-movie-poster

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...]

Critically Acclaimed LOVE IS STRANGE Opens at THE NEON!

Film Set - 'Love Is Strange'

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...]

‘Fences’ Review – Wright State University – The American Family in Conflict

fences 2

August Wilson’s tremendously visceral 1987 Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning drama “Fences,” among the finest inclusions in his remarkable 10-play “Pittsburgh Cycle” chronicling the African-American experience in the 20th century, opens Wright State University’s 40th anniversary season with emotionally riveting resonance. Beginning in 1957 and spanning nearly eight years in the life of a middle class African-American family in Pittsburgh, “Fences,” splendidly and poignantly co-directed by W. Stuart McDowell and Sheila Ramsey, centers its thought-provoking account of race, regret, … [Read more...]
