A Houston-proud gift idea for the Movieholic, this book covers the places in Houston that showed the shows. Cinema Houston celebrates a vibrant century of movie theatres and moviegoing in Texas’ largest city. Illustrated with more than two hundred historical photographs, newspaper clippings, and advertisements, it traces the history of Houston movie theatres from their early twentieth-century beginnings to the present, including drive-in theatres and sections on the River Oaks and Alabama Theatres. Signed copies are available.
