Five Great Movies Filmed in Houston

Earlier this week, the Alamo Drafthouse and Texas Monthly announced the schedule for their Rolling Roadshow, a film tour that pairs 10 great Texas movies with the places they were filmed. Giant and No Country for Old Men will be screened in Marfa, Tender Mercies will be shown in Waxahatchie, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will be shown in Kingsland (have fun on the drive home, y'all!).

Of course, with a schedule like that and with the backing of such notable sponsors, we'd expect at least one screening of Rushmore or Reality Bites here in our fair city. Hell, we'd even settle for Sidekicks just to relive our middle school days when we didn't really know who Chuck Norris was but man, was he cool. But Houston's nowhere to be found on the schedule.
