Ever wonder what it was like to see a movie at the Alabama Theater instead of buying a book there? Cinema Houston, by local author David Welling, has the answer. Welling takes us from Houstons old vaudeville and nickelodeon houses, to the majestic and plush movie palaces of the 1920s, to todays high-tech multi-cinemas and megaplexes. Todays reading starts at 7 p.m. Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-523-0701 or visit brazos.booksense.com. Free.
