We love the Neon. We have been going there quite a bit lately catching up on Oscar nominated films. Love their selection at the concession stand (but bring back Reese’s Peanutbutter cups please) and Jonathan is always a welcome sight.

The Neon is easily the best place to see a film in Dayton. There's always a great line-up of independent and art cinema, reasonable ticket and concession prices, convenient and free parking just across the street, and the always fabulous Jonathan McNeal as manager.
