Synopsis (The Orchard)
"From the Oscar-nominated team behind the genre-defying EMBRACE THE SERPENT, comes an equally audacious saga centered on the Wayúu indigenous people during a crucial period in recent Colombian history. Torn between his desire to become a powerful man and his duty to uphold his culture’s values, Rapayet enters the drug trafficking business in the 1970s and finds quick success despite his tribe’s matriarch Ursula’s disapproval. Ignoring ancient omens, Rapayet and his family get caught up in a conflict where honor is the highest currency and debts are paid with blood. A sprawling epic about the erosion of tradition in pursuit of material wealth, Birds of Passage is a visually striking exploration of loyalty, greed, and the voracious nature of change."

Synopsis (A24)
"Gloria (Julianne Moore) is a free-spirited divorcée who spends her days at a straight-laced office job and her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity, and family. From Academy Award-winning director Sebastián Lelio (A FANTASTIC WOMAN, DISOBEDIENCE) comes a sophisticated romantic comedy that shows love can strike at any time, relationships are never simple, and nothing can get you down as long as you keep dancing."

"From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a cinematic event fifty years in the making. Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the hear t of NASA’s most celebrated mission—the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future."

Synopsis (Press Notes)
"The Dayton NAACP Youth Council will host a screening of the award winning documentary film THE RAPE OF RECY TAYLOR as part of Odyssey Impact's national impact campaign. Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old black mother and sharecropper, was gang raped by six white boys in 1944 Alabama. Common in Jim Crow South, few women spoke up in fear for their lives. Not Recy Taylor, who bravely identified her rapists. The NAACP sent its chief rape investigator Rosa Parks, who rallied support and triggered an unprecedented outcry for justice. This screening presents a great opportunity for members of our community to engage in a post-screening discussion in honor of Women's History Month." Tickets are $6 each and available at THE NEON's box office and via the "Tickets" link above.

Synopsis (Dayton Women's Rights Alliance)
LUNAFEST, a national festival of women's films, returns to THE NEON on Sunday March 24 at 3:00. LUNAFEST 2019 features award-winning short films for, by and about women that tell thought-provoking stories of coming-of-age, love and loss, and reflections on the past. In addition to this traveling collection of films, we will showcase TRAGIC REFUGE, a short film about incarcerated survivors of domestic violence. This insightful film was shot in Dayton and produced by Chinonye Chukwu, who recently made history at Sundance Film Festival as the first black woman to win their top Jury Prize in the Dramatic category for her film, CLEMENCY. Chukwu was featured at a previous Lunafest event at THE NEON when she presented short films from incarcerated women that she mentored at the Dayton Correctional Institute through PENS TO PICTURES. A short Q&A with co-producer Nancy Grigsby will follow the screening. Proceeds will benefit the Ohio Domestic Violence Network and Chicken & Egg Pictures, a nonprofit that supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose innovative storytelling catalyzes social change. Tickets are $10.00 ($5.00 for students) and donations over this amount are gratefully accepted. Tickets can be purchased in advance at THE NEON - in person or via this site. The event is sponsored locally by Dayton Women's Rights Alliance. Information about the Lunafest films can be viewed by visiting the "official website" link above.

Synopsis (Press Notes)
Tickets for the 7:15 & 10:15 screenings have SOLD OUT! "In the mid 90's the Dayton, OH music scene became a hot spot generating world wide buzz from the influential indie rock being produced. Arguably the most innovative of them all was the band Brainiac, led by musical genius and insanely charismatic front man Tim Taylor. The band was opening for Beck and being courted by major labels when Tim was tragically killed in a bizarre auto accident leaving his family and bandmates to pick up the pieces. This film explores the band's music, legacy, massive influence on pop culture and how people survive and cope with the loss of loved ones. Fresh off of it's prestigious Word Premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, BRAINIAC: TRANSMISSIONS AFER ZERO will make its hometown premiere in Dayton Friday, April 19th at THE NEON. The evening will feature a conversation with Director Eric Mahoney and Editor Ian Jacobs as well as many special guests and surprises." Tickets for the 7:15 screening will be $15, and all other screenings will be $12. Tickets on sale now!
