The booking fairy has granted us a wish! THE NEON currently has Dayton’s exclusive booking of THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT…and that’s great for you, because THE NEON has Dayton’s best first-run ticket prices (not to mention a great selection of microbrews and imported beers). We hope you’ll make plans to come out and support this film that is winning audiences & critics over across the country.
Synopsis for THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT: “The Kids Are All Right is the heartfelt new comedy from acclaimed director Lisa Cholodenko, starring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo. Two teenaged children (Alice in Wonderland’s Mia Wasikowska and Journey to the Center of the Earth’s Josh Hutcherson) get the notion to seek out their biological father and introduce him into the family life that their two mothers (Bening and Moore) have built for them. Once the donor (Ruffalo) is found, the household will never be the same, as family ties are defined, re-defined, and re-re-defined. The New York Times raves that it’s ‘a generous, nearly note-perfect portrait of a modern family,’ and Entertainment Weekly calls the movie ‘funny, smart and sexy!’” (taken from movieweb.com) Click on the image below to be directed to the official site.
We had to move WINTER’S BONE back a week, so we’re going to hold CYRUS for another week and hold onto MICMACS for one screening a day for one more week. Both of these films will leave next Thursday to make room for WINTER’S BONE on August 6th. Hurry down if you still need to see either of these films.
The Downtown Dayton LGBT Film Festival is swinging into action for its 5th year! Mark your calendars for September 24-26. The opening night film will be I KILLED MY MOTHER(an absolutely incredible film that has won awards and garnered high praise from numerous film festivals…from Cannes to Toronto to Frameline) – and you absolutely can’t miss it on the big screen. In next week’s update, I’ll announce the entire line-up. If you know someone who would like to sponsor the festival (either through a business or personally), please get in touch with me right away.
And Now – FREE TICKET Information. We want you to review our films! Come to THE NEON and see our current films…then post your review on DaytonMostMetro.com under THE NEON’s weekly update. At the end of August, we’ll collect all the names of people who have reviewed films – and we’ll draw 2 winners for a free pass (good for 2 admissions). Each film review counts as an entry (though you can only review a film one time). Please join in and help create some energy for THE NEON. (If this goes over well, we’ll do it next month, too.)
We hope to see you in the coming week.
