“Only independent theater in Dayton - Great Movies”
Review of The Neon

The Neon
Ranked #2 of 14 Fun & Games in Dayton
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 March 2017

The Neon is Dayton's independent theater that shows the films that the big boxes won't. If you want to see movies that contain a plot and have excellent reviews this is the place for you. They have beer and wine available. Two theaters - one smaller than the other, but new seats!! This is our #1 go to theater in Dayton. No it doesn't offer 3D or Imax or surround sound -- just great movies.

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.

We saw the movie "La La Land", a fun musical. This was the first time for us at the Neon. The parking across the street in the old bus station is great and free. The theater has a small lobby with interesting concessions including beer, wine, coffees. I got a "smoked bourbon sugar cookie" to share! Yum! We got there 15-20 minutes before showtime and nearly did NOT get tickets. The earlier shows of the day also SOLD OUT! The theater was very nice, comfy seats, and just very enjoyable! We will go again!

It's been nearly 3 years since I reviewed the Neon and have been there countless times since. New seating was recently installed in both theaters and they are excellent. I had no problem with the old seats but the new ones are the bomb!

We love watching movies at The Neon. They nearly always have at least one film that we are anxious to see. A number of times we have watched two back-to-back and once, we even watched all three that were showing. All that was great bout The Neon is still great and the new seating is the icing on the cake!

Went to watch The Beatles special Eight Days A Week on a Tuesday and was surprised that the price was $5.00 That's the price every Tuesday. Wonderful! New seats were comfortable and cozy atmosphere.
