Synopsis (Neon)
"Katia and Maurice Krafft loved two things — each other and volcanoes. For two decades, the daring French volcanologist couple roamed the planet, chasing eruptions and documenting their discoveries. Ultimately, they lost their lives in a 1991 volcanic explosion, leaving a legacy that forever enriched our knowledge of the natural world. Director Sara Dosa and the filmmaking team fashion a lyrical celebration of the intrepid scientists’ spirit of adventure, drawing from the Kraffts’ spectacular archive. FIRE OF LOVE tells a story of primordial creation and destruction, following two bold explorers as they venture into the unknown, all for the sake of love." Narrated by Miranda July. CLOSED CAPTION DEVICES ARE AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM.

Synopsis (Janus Films)
A new 4K restoration of LOST HIGHWAY, supervised by David Lynch, is heading to THE NEON for select screenings starting Aug 19! In LOST HIGHWAY, "Lynch fashions two separate but intersecting stories, one about a jazz musician (Bill Pullman), tortured by the notion that his wife is having an affair, who suddenly finds himself accused of her murder. The other is a young mechanic (Balthazar Getty) drawn into a web of deceit by a temptress who is cheating on her gangster boyfriend. These two tales are linked by the fact that the women in both are played by the same actress (Patricia Arquette)."

Synopsis (Bleecker Street)
"Faye (Dale Dickey) is a lone traveler biding her time fishing, birding and stargazing at a rural Colorado campground as she awaits the arrival of Lito (Wes Studi), a figure from her past who is navigating his own tentative and nomadic journey across the rugged West. Like the country music that has traditionally channeled the heartbreak and resilience of Americans in search of themselves and others, A Love Song weaves a lyrical and ultimately joyful refrain out of the transformative act of being alone —and reminds us that love can nourish and mystify at any age."

On Monday, August 22, A LOVE SONG will be presented with open captions.

Synopsis (Briarcliff Entertainment)
From the directors of RBG comes another powerful & inspiring documentary about an incredible woman in the political spotlight. "GABBY GIFFORDS WON’T BACK DOWN tells the extraordinary story of former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, her relentless fight to recover following an assassination attempt in 2011, and her new life as one of the most effective activists in the battle for gun violence prevention and in promoting understanding of the language condition aphasia. Featuring extensive verité filming of Gabby and her husband, astronaut-turned-Senator Mark Kelly; interviews with Barack Obama and other friends and colleagues; and exclusive access to stunning videos taken in the weeks following her near-death experience, this film is the story of a rising star transformed by an act of violence, and a close-up portrait of the marriage that sustains her."

Synopsis (MGM/UA)
From director George Miller, director of MAD MAX, comes a new, exciting vision! "Dr Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is an academic - content with life and a creature of reason. While in Istanbul attending a conference, she happens to encounter a Djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom. This presents two problems. First, she doubts that he is real and second, because she is a scholar of story and mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong. The Djinn pleads his case by telling her fantastical stories of his past. Eventually she is beguiled and makes a wish that surprises them both."

Synopsis (Kino Lorber)
Dayton-Miami Valley Democratic Socialists of America will present the classic documentary THE WOBBLIES on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 7pm. Following the screening, local DSA member Julia Reichert and THE WOBBLIES' Director Deborah Schaffer will lead a discussion and Q&A session. THE WOBBLIES was recently restored by the Museum of Modern Art and inducted into the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. "Founded in Chicago in 1905, the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) took to organizing unskilled workers into one big union and changed the course of American history. This compelling documentary of the IWW (or “The Wobblies” as they were known) tells the story of workers in factories, sawmills, wheat fields, forests, mines and on the docks as they organize and demand better wages, healthcare, overtime pay and safer working conditions. In some respects, men and women, Black and white, skilled and unskilled workers joining a union and speaking their minds seems so long ago, but in other ways, the film mirrors today’s headlines, depicting a nation torn by corporate greed. Filmmakers Deborah Shaffer and Stewart Bird weave history, archival film footage, interviews with former workers (now in their 80s and 90s), cartoons, original art, and classic Wobbly songs (many written by Joe Hill) to pay tribute to the legacy of these rebels who paved the way and risked their lives for the many of the rights that we still have today." Tickets are $8 each.

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.

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.
