On Screen Dayton



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.
