“TBA "Nebraska" movie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

We have visited The Neon in the past. We enjoyed a draft while watching a film that had a "slow start." We are watching the website for the upcoming b&w movie, Nebraska. It has had excellent review. It is a "road movie."

“Love this retro style movie theater.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

One of my favorite places to see a movie. Retro style love. Good for families and dates and easily accessed in downtown Dayton.

“Movie Buff's Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Large multiplex movie eaters abound, but the small town gems, like The Neon, are a showcase of movies lacking big budget marketing campaigns. The Neon is one of a kind in the Dayton area and a favorite among movie buffs. With just two screens, the choices change frequently. Neon attracts a wonderful clientele ... Have never once had someone talk out or answer a cell phone in the theater, as is too frequent at the big boxes. The coffee, beer and wine choices also set them apart from the big box competition, and make viewing a complete evening. We are frequent visitors!

Look for free parking in the lot across the street.

“The Best in Independent/Foreign Film”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Two comfortable theaters. Well-chosen foreign and independent films. Nothing better between Columbus and Cincinnatti.
