We begin our run of a movie on Friday that audiences have been swarming to see all over the country…and I’m excited that we’re getting the exclusive opening of the film in Dayton. CYRUS – a film by the Duplass Brothers – stars John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill, Marisa Tomei and Catherine Keener.
Synopsis for CYRUS: “Directed by mumblecore stalwarts Jay and Mark Duplass, Cyrus stars John C. Reilly as John, a middle-aged lonely divorced guy who, as the film opens, gets dragged to a party by his remarried ex-wife (Catherine Keener) — who remains his best friend. After a few clumsy, drunken passes at a variety of women, John encounters Molly (Marisa Tomei), an attractive single-mom who finds John’s social awkwardness appealing. They hit it off, and quickly begin a tender new relationship. Problems soon arise in the form of Cyrus (Jonah Hill), Molly’s twentysomething son, who has an off-puttingly close relationship to his mom. Soon the jealous Cyrus sets about trying to break them up, and John must figure out how to deal with this unhinged and unexpected rival.” (Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide)
If you still need to see HARRY BROWN or THE SQUARE, today is the last day (Thursday) to see them at THE NEON.
We’ll hold I AM LOVE – which has received interesting response from our regulars. Though some have had a luke-warm reaction to the film, others are swooning – with repeated viewings and complete admiration for everything about the film. Personally, I’m of the latter camp.
Madeline Breslin wrote me a note describing the film as “…breathtaking. Exquisite! Perfect! Searing!” and Chase Whiteside thinks “…it is brilliant.” Stuart McDowell thinks the film is “very powerful,” and I must agree!
Don’t forget about our cross-promotion with Coco’s Bistro. Plan on seeing the film the same day you have lunch/dinner at Coco’s Bistro – www.228coco.com – and you’ll save! (Click on their link to read more about the promotion.)
Our line-up is getting quite crowded over the coming weeks…so things may come and go quickly and opening dates may move around. Thanks for staying up-to-date with my weekly newsletter.
We hope to see you very soon!
