I returned to Dayton on December 24 (after visiting with my folks for a couple days) to find that we had lost exclusivity with our engagement of THE KING’S SPEECH…and I’ll admit I was disappointed and a bit heartbroken. But I shouldn’t have been.
More Daytonians supported THE KING’S SPEECH at THE NEON than at any of the multiplexes…and I thank you for your support! We have had a couple sell-outs and numerous large audiences since the film opened on December 25, and people are absolutely loving the film.
If you haven’t seen it yet, we hope to see you soon!
If you’ve already seen the film, please keep spreading the word…and tell people that THE NEON has the best prices in town.

BLACK SWAN has flooded the marketplace over the past several days, and our extraordinary ticket sales have started to fall…so we may open MADE IN DAGENHAM a bit earlier than planned (Jan. 7 instead of Jan. 14)…but all that depends on business during the upcoming weekend. I’ll keep you posted.
Here are a couple notes on upcoming special events:
“Jasmine “Jazz” Taylor, a 2006 alumnus of Stivers School of the Arts and graduate of The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles, will premiere the DVD of a fashion show fundraiser that helped further her educational development. The fashion show involved the community and showed the world that dreams can come true if you believe. The show focused on the “A Touch of Jazz” fashion line along with two new up and coming designers: Jamila Jones and Jamae Abney. In addition to the designers, local students were featured; doing anything from dancing, singing, and rapping, to modeling and playing instruments.
Unwrapping The Dream Fashion Show DVD Premiere Release is an opportunity for fashion show participates to fellowship with their peers, family, and friends while watching themselves on the big screen. It will be held Sunday January 16, 2011 at THE NEON – tickets are just $5.” (taken from press notes)
“RIDE THE DIVIDE, which was named best adventure film at the 2010 Vail Film Festival, is an inspiring journey about the world’s toughest mountain bike race, which traverses over 2,700 miles along the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains. The film weaves the story of the three characters’ experiences with immense mountain beauty and small-town culture as they attempt to ride from Banff, Canada, to a small, dusty crossing on the Mexican border. The tests of endurance and the accomplished moments throughout Ride the Divide prompt us to reflect on our inner desires to live life to the fullest.” The film will play One Night Only – Wednesday, January 26 at 7:30. Advanced tickets are only available by visiting this LINK. The official site of the film can be found at www.ridethedivide.com.
Have a Safe & Happy New Year!
