Cinema Orange: NEON

Free Fridays; no charge.

NEON (2015) celebrates the beauty, color and vibrant history of the neon sign from an International perspective as we face a world where it will soon be lost and superseded by L.E.D. signage. Neon is 100 years old and the craft and construction has changed very little, making neon one the greenest forms of light ever produced and an amazing and enduring force of color and light in the visual landscapes of our lives.

Q&A follows the screening with architectural historian Alan Hess and artist Michael Flechtner.

Directed by Lawrence Johnston

Running time: 84 minutes
