In case you missed out on the sold-out premiere of the film about one of the most influential 1990s bands to emerge from the Gem City last month, you will get another chance.
“Brainiac: Transmissions After Zero” from former Dayton resident Eric Mahoney will return to the Neon movies, 130 E. Fifth St. in downtown Dayton, beginning Friday, May 17, for an entire week, the theater announced.

Show times for this weekend and next week are:
• Friday & Saturday (May 17-18): 7:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m.
• Sunday (May 19): 8:00 p.m.
• Monday-Thursday (May 20-23): 7:40 p.m.
The sold-out premieres took place in April at the Neon. Members of the band reunited in Dayton for a special show at the Brightside last month as well.
Before that, the film premiered at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival.
Brainiac formed in Dayton in January 1992 with Tim Taylor (vocals, guitar), Juan Monasterio (bass), Tyler Trent (drums) and guitarist Michelle Bodine, who was replaced by John Schmersal in 1994.
On the heels of opening for Beck on a European tour, tragedy struck the band as they were on the verge of signing with a major label.
Taylor died on May 23, 1997 when his 1977 Mercedes crashed into a pole on Main Street in Dayton. He was just blocks from his home.
