Houston Cinema

This book details the history of Houston’s movie-house palaces of the past

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 Houston’s old vaudeville and nickelodeon houses, to the majestic and plush movie palaces of the 1920s, to today’s high-tech multi-cinemas and megaplexes. Today’s reading starts at 7 p.m. Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-523-0701 or visit brazos.booksense.com. Free.
