Neon Movies

The kind of storytelling once only found in movie theatres is everywhere now —streamable at Amazon and Netflix, available at ITunes, and on television, too. Community Voices producer Dave Barber wondered how all this content is affecting the two art house cinemas in the region:The Little Art Theatre in Yellow Springs and the Neon in Dayton.

An Art House cinema is an independently run theatre that shows movies you don’t see everywhere - foreign films, documentaries, smaller films - often not produced by the big studios.

The film Carol makes its debut at the Neon Movies in Dayton Thursday night. The film—much of which was shot in Cincinnati in the spring of 2014—features local residents who served as extras in the film and several Daytonians served on the film’s production crew.

The Dayton LGBT Film Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and to find out about this year’s selections, we spoke once again with Jonathan McNeil, manager at the Neon Movies in downtown Dayton.

McNeil says festival passes sold out quickly this year but individual tickets are still available for all shows.  Friday night's ticket stub will get you into an expanded after-party at Gilly's nightclub following the movie.

In this edition of WYSO Weekend: Rediscovered Radio and Community Voices. Plus we’ll hear about a possible shared space in downtown Dayton that would give residents access to high tech digital equipment, and a documentary film making it’s debut in Dayton next week. See full program details below.

All of us have appreciated the sights, sounds, and smells of Glen Helen….and the wild flowers, raptors, tree frogs, the great blue heron...And almost all poets have nature poems. During this holiday/solstice season those works will be shared, at a poetry reading, "In the Spirit of the Glen," on today from 7-9:00p.m. Vernet Ecological Center at 
405 Corry St in Yellow Springs.
