ONE WEEK ONLY! "2019 marks the centenary of legendary American choreographer Merce Cunningham. This poetic film traces Merce’s artistic evolution over three decades of risk and discovery (1944–1972), from his early years as a struggling dancer in postwar New York to his emergence as one of the most visionary and influential choreographers worldwide.

Synopsis (Neon Rated)
RETURN ENGAGEMENT! One of the most awarded films of the year is still at "99% Fresh" on rottentomatoes. This film is hard to describe. It is full of social commentary, and it can't be pinned down to one genre. "Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide 'indispensable' luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, PARASITE showcases a modern master at the top of his game." (taken from Neon Rated) From Bong Joon Ho - director of THE HOST, MOTHER and SNOWPIERCER. THIS FILM IS SUBTITLED.

Synopsis (Area23a)
Currently rated "100% Fresh" on rottentomatoes, Jeannette Catsoulis of THE NEW YORK TIMES wrote, "A charming blend of science and conjecture, FANTASTIC FUNGI wants to free your mind." "FANTASTIC FUNGI, directed by Louie Schwartzberg, is a consciousness-shifting film that takes us on an immersive journey through time and scale into the magical earth beneath our feet, an underground network that can heal and save our planet. Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil and others, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offer us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges."

Synopsis (Sony)
"Writer-director Greta Gerwig (LADY BIRD) has crafted a LITTLE WOMEN that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on her own terms -- is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March."

Rating: NR
Running Time: 1 Hr 27 Min + music and Q&A

Synopsis (Dale Farmer)
Dale Farmer is bringing his award-winning film to THE NEON again on Thursday, January 23...and it has already SOLD OUT (Jan. 16 SOLD OUT, and the 23rd has been added as an encore!) "Deeply infused with the traditional Appalachian musical genres of Old Time and Bluegrass, THE MOUNTAIN MINOR tells an overlooked story about the people and culture behind the resurgence of American Roots Music today and highlights artful responses to the difficult circumstances of human migration. In the 1920s-1950s, millions of Appalachians left their homes in the mountains and migrated to urban Midwestern centers in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Michigan. The Mountain Minor is the story of a life-worn Charlie Abner, a generation later, as he struggles with leaving his present life and family in Cincinnati, Ohio to return to the Kentucky Mountain home and musical heritage that once defined him. The story is partially told in flashbacks to depression era Eastern Kentucky, when Charlie’s parents, Oza and Vestal Abner, face the difficult decision to leave the way of life they know and move to Ohio for employment and better opportunities. This is not only film director Dale Farmer’s family story, but the story of thousands of families that left their mountain homes to move to the Dayton, Ohio area to become the heart of the working middle class. This film is unique in that all of its principal actors are traditional musicians—such as Smithsonian Folkways artist Elizabeth LaPrelle and acclaimed banjoist and fiddler Dan Gellert—and they perform all of the music in the film. Pre-film music by Ben Cooper & Friends (Jan. 23) will start at 7:30, and the movie will play at 8:00. A Q&A will follow the film with the writer/director Dale Farmer and actors Ma Crow, Warren & Judy Waldron and Amy Cogan Clay."

Synopsis (Vonshay Exclusive)
Vonshay Exclusive & Takelia Day are bringing their new film to THE NEON. "PERFECTED LOVE, a true story written and directed by Takelia Day, is about a young boy who grew up in the inner city of Dayton, Ohio. Darren Jackson allows his audience into his life as he shares his experiences of love, loss, heart breaks, disappointments and tough lessons that would follow him into adulthood. Tough lessons that could have easily destroyed him instead pushed him to mature in both stature and wisdom. Refusing to become a victim of his past circumstances, he persevered in the face of adversity yet there was that one thing that he wrestled with within himself - unfulfillment, or was he? Is love a figment of one's imagination or is it the matter of the heart? We invite you to take this journey with us as we embark upon life love lessons of PERFECTED LOVE. For ticket information contact Vonshay Exclusive at (937)715-5015. Tickets, $20 each, may also be purchased on the day of the showing if seats are available. Complimentary refreshments and free parking the day of the event."
