THIS JUST IN!!! BLACK SWAN has moved up! It will now open on December 17th (instead of the 22nd)!
First off, I need to let you know that FAIR GAME will have its last day at THE NEON on Thursday. Folks have been loving this film, but attendance fell drastically this weekend…so it has to go. For remaining showtimes, please visit our website. 127 HOURS will stick around.
Before I move forward with more of this week’s news, I’m delighted to let you know that we have managed to book a film that is destined to be a huge hit with us. THE KING’S SPEECH, which I saw and adored in Toronto, is currently scheduled to open on Dec. 25th. Between KING’S SPEECH and BLACK SWAN, all signs are good that we’ll end 2010 on a fantastic note!
On Friday, we open a film that has already garnered a following. The third and final installment about the girl with the dragon tattoo – THE GIRL WHO KICKED A HORNET’S NEST – “is positively soul-satisfying,” writes Kirk Honeycutt of The Hollywood Reporter. “The movie features a great finish, where three movies’ worth of subplots and characters dovetail into a breathtaking climax and final confrontation…”
Synopsis for THE GIRL WHO KICKED A HORNET’S NEST: “In this last installment, Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable, like herself, to suffer abuse and violence. And, on her own, she will plot revenge – against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her life.” (Music Box Films) OFFICIAL WEBSITE
Please be certain to pay close attention to showtimes. Due to recent trends and the duration of our upcoming attractions, showtimes are not the same from day to day. Sunday through Thursday will not have late screenings. (Upcoming showtimes are listed below.)
The Children’s Holiday Film Series is already underway, and the snow last Saturday seemed to cement the idea that the holidays are upon us! Films are FREE for children 12 and under…and only $2 for adults. This week’s selection has become a holiday favorite for many!
Here’s what’s left:
Dec. 11 at Noon – ELF (comedy starring Will Ferrell)
Dec. 18 at Noon – THE GRINCH (the beloved Dr. Seuss tale starring Jim Carrey)
Most of you who frequent THE NEON know Diana – she’s our assistant manager who is responsible for the beautiful menu boards in our concession area. Way above and beyond her inventory duties, Diana decided to come up with a delicious menu of holiday drinks – ranging from traditional Eggnog (*spiked, of course*) to Candy Cane Hot Cocoa. Check out the special menu during your next visit.
Lastly, we have a special treat for those of you looking to give NEON gift certificates this holiday season. For every $50 of gift certificates you purchase, you will receive a free bag of Candy Cane Granola. This delicious, locally made snack was recently sampled by the staff…and quickly became a favorite. Loaded with peppermint schnapps, white chocolate, dried cranberries and almonds, you might end up keeping this treat for yourself.
We hope to see you very soon.
