ELVIS

Running Time: 2 Hrs 39 Min

Synopsis (Warner Brothers)
"ELVIS is an epic, big-screen spectacle from Warner Bros. Pictures and visionary, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Baz Luhrmann that explores the life and music of Elvis Presley, starring Austin Butler and Oscar winner Tom Hanks. A thoroughly cinematic drama, Elvis’s (Butler) story is seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). As told by Parker, the film delves into the complex dynamic between the two spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge)." CLOSED CAPTION DEVICES AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM. NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION DEVICES AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM. HEARING ASSISTANCE DEVICES AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM. On Monday, June 27, both screenings of ELVIS will be presented with open captions (captions will be projected on the screen).

Synopsis (Sony Classics)
"THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN follows Maurice Flitcroft (Mark Rylance), a dreamer and unrelenting optimist who managed to gain entry to The British Open Golf Championship Qualifying in 1976 and subsequently shot the worst round in Open history, becoming a folk hero in the process." The LA TIMES writes, "Rylance makes golf irresistible in inspiring true story! Rylance compels as the star of his own kooky fable," and THE WASHINGTON POST writes, "A sly little gem grounded in a fantastic performance by Rylance!" CLOSED CAPTION DEVICES AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM.

Synopsis (IFC Films)
"Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas star as two egomaniacs commissioned by a millionaire to make a movie together in this sharp comedy skewering wealth, art, and pride." THE WASHINGTON POST writes, "A sly satire of cinema that also manages to be a showcase for the comedic chops of its stars: Penélope Cruz, Antonio Banderas and Oscar Martínez," and TIME Magazine writes, "All three actors are clearly having a blast with this satire of actorly egos and vanity projects, but it’s Cruz who truly dazzles."

On Saturday, June 11, 2022 at 11am, THE NEON, in partnership with ThinkTV PBS and The Dayton Metro Library, kicked off a 6-week series of FREE Family Films on Saturday mornings. Each week, doors will open at 10:30am, and tickets will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis. Events will start with a Read-Along videos with Dayton Metro Library’s Ms. Winnie and continue with programming from the PBS Kids library.

Each Saturday will focus on a different program: July 2 – “Be My Neighbor Day” with DANIEL TIGER – this screening will be preceded by a hands-on event on THE NEON’s patio hosted by The Dayton International Peace Museum; July 9 – “Exploring the Library” with CURIOUS GEORGE - this screening will be followed by a post-screening “hands on” event at the Dayton Metro Library Main Branch where children will have an opportunity to meet “Curious George” at 1pm.; July 16 – “Nature Day” with NATURE CAT

We were delighted to partner with The Human Race Theatre Company during their 2019/2020 Season - "Women of Influence: Their Power, Passion & Pitfalls." PNC came on board to sponsor this spectacular line-up of films - and then the world closed down in the middle of the season. Our first three screenings were very successful...then we screened DIE! DIE! MY DARLING! on August 23, 2021 with an enthusiastic audience. Unfortunately, we will have to find a new date for BE NATURAL: THE UNTOLD STORY OF ALICE GUY BLANCHE. Passes for this screening will still be honored.

Synopsis (NEON MGMT.)
THE NEON's Board is moving forward with our plan to ease some of our COVID protocols. Starting Friday, April 1, 2022, we no longer require proof of vaccination for moviegoers. Additionally, our current masks are "highly recommended, but not required." Here's what hasn't changed: - Staff will continue to be masked until further notice. - Our state-of-the-art, hospital-grade air purifiers will still be operating 24 hours a day. We have one in each auditorium and one in the lobby. - At this time, we're still not encouraging congregating in our lobby before or after shows. You might recall that we used to have numerous bistro tables in the lobby...those will be gone until further notice. That said, as warm weather permits, we hope you'll utilize our patio for pre & post film discussions. We even hope you'll join us on the patio for a beer or glass of wine when possible this spring. - Plexiglass barriers will still be between customers and staff at points of sale. We will still place a buffer seat between parties in each auditorium until further notice unless both parties agree that a buffer seat is not required. - Assigned seating will still be part of our practice. In addition to our daily practice of sanitizing all utilized seats, we will also have all of our seat components treated with electrostatic protection from Ecovasive Infection Control. - Please realize that these protocols could change at any time as we continue to monitor the trends in our community's healthcare system and seek guidance from health care professionals.
