It’s time to say farewell to THE DESCENDANTS – one of our big hits from 2011. If you haven’t seen the film yet (or need to see it again), you only have through Thursday to see it at THE NEON. On Friday, we will open a film that has been long-awaited by several of you and a “Top 10” for numerous critics – TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY. For our other screen, MY WEEK WITH MARILYN will hold for another week.
I just found out that we will not be exclusive on TINKER TAILOR. Though this is a big disappointment, I hope you’ll help us by telling your friends & family to please support this film at THE NEON. Having a great opening weekend will help send the message to distributors that THE NEON is where people want to see smart, thought-provoking cinema.
Synopsis for TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY: “The time is 1973. The Cold War of the mid-20th Century continues to damage international relations. Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), a.k.a. MI6 and code-named the Circus, is striving to keep pace with other countries’ espionage efforts and to keep the U.K. secure. When things go awry, it’s up to top lieutenant, George Smiley, a career spy with razor-sharp senses, to get things back on track.” (Taken from Focus Features) Based on the 1974 novel by John le Carre that “redefined the spy thriller,” the new film stars Gary Oldman, John Hurt, Toby Jones, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy and Mark Strong.

We have several organizations renting our space for special events in the coming weeks…so I’ll hopefully have more details for you by next week’s newsletter.
We hope to see you this weekend at THE NEON,
