On Screen Dayton



Hello Everyone, Earlier today, I made an announcement about WOMAN IN GOLD opening at THE NEON on April 1…that plan has changed.  The Weinstein Company has made big changes to their release strategy for WOMAN IN GOLD.  After confirming April 1 as its opening date for us, they have yanked it away (from us and numerous other cinemas across the country).  At this time, we don't know if we will be able to play the film when it finally becomes available in our market.  That said, I have made the appropriate changes to this week's newsletter below.  Thanks for your understanding - this is very … [Read more...]

Golden Globe Winner LEVIATHAN Opens March 20th at THE NEON!


Hello Everyone, Even though WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS and THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL are performing well enough to stick around, we're still going to throw something new into the mix for a handful of screenings. LEVIATHAN is one of the best reviewed films we've shown in a long time, and it was the winner of this year's Golden Globe for "Best Foreign Language Film." For this week's remaining showtimes (they're different than the upcoming week - which are listed below), please visit our website at www.neonmovies.com   Synopsis for LEVIATHAN: "Kolia lives in a small town … [Read more...]



Hello Everyone, If you still need to see MR. TURNER or STILL ALICE, you'll need to hurry. Thursday will be the last chance to catch them at THE NEON.

Many thanks to all of you who came out to support this film during opening weekend. We had the best results in town, and we couldn't do it without such a great, loyal following. Thank you! On Friday, we will open a new comedy that's in the same "vein" as SPINAL TAP and BEST IN SHOW. … [Read more...]



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...]
