ISLE OF DOGS
This latest Wes Anderson film is full of treats. Lindsey Bahr of The Associated Press wrote, "ISLE OF DOGS is positively littered with his signature banter, and it as quick and wry as ever, without a single hair out of place." And Leah Greenblat of Entertainment Weekly wrote, "The 48-year-old auteur proves that even the drollest dog can learn new tricks, plumbing fresh depths of feeling and tenderhearted eccentricity.""ISLE OF DOGS tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies to Trash Island in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture."

Synopsis (Roadside Attractions)
"When 'Lady' Sandra Abbott (Academy Award nominee Imelda Staunton - VERA DRAKE, PRIDE, HARRY POTTER) discovers that her husband of forty years is having an affair with her best friend, she seeks refuge in London with her estranged, older sister Bif (Celia Imrie - BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL). The two could not be more different - Sandra is a fish out of water next to her outspoken, serial dating, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs at the moment, and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to a community dance class, where gradually she starts finding her feet and romance as she meets her sister's friends. This colorful, defiant and energetic group start to show Sandra that retirement is in fact only the beginning, and that divorce might just give her a whole new lease on love and life."

Synopsis (937 Fall LLC)
Our two special screenings on April 12 were a huge success, so we've had numerous requests to bring the film for a matinee screening...so we're giving you plenty of time to make your plans for Saturday, May 12 at Noon. "WE'RE DOING FINE, a feature film written and directed by Dayton native and Stivers grad Djuna Wahlrab, is a story about an unlikely friendship between two people from Dayton, OH: one who left and one who stayed. When they first meet, their hometown seems to be all that Gertie and John share. But as each faces the loss of a single parent, they connect, gaining just enough confidence to hear, 'Just keep going. You've got this. You're doing fine.' Shot entirely in the Dayton area by fellow Stivers grad Adam Miller and scored by R. Ring's Kelley Deal and Mike Montgomery, WE'RE DOING FINE also features songs by Dayton-origin bands such as Motel Beds, Heartless Bastards, Buffalo Killers, Lou Barlow, Real Lulu, Me Time and The Judy Blooms." Tickets are available now at THE NEON's Box Office (in-person only)!

Synopsis (Mike Shea)
"MONARCH is a neo-noir mystery short about a detective trying to make sense of the drug dealing underworld of a small mid-western city. This film was shot all around Dayton, OH's legendary Oregon District. The cast is comprised entirely of comedians from the Dayton area starring in almost exclusively dramatic roles. The story itself is based on writer/director Michael Shea's 2017 docu-drama THE CROSS AT THE GEM. This film was submitted (in a condensed 5-minute cut) to the 2018 Lander University 2WK Film Festival in Greenwood, SC. At this special one-night event, the audience will be treated to an opening performance from some of the cast and crew, a screening of the original 2017 film THE CROSS AT THE GEM as well as the premiere of the full director's cut version of the film MONARCH. The premiere will close with a Q&A session with the whole cast and crew. Tickets are $5 and are available at The Neon box office. Fans can also qualify for fun rewards and prizes by supporting the film's GoFundMe campaign at the official site link above."
