Head to one of these independent theaters in Houston, where you can grab some popcorn and enjoy a night to remember.

River Oaks Theatre 

A local landmark since 1939, River Oaks Theatre is the area’s last remaining movie palace. It opened with the Bachelor Mother and was called “thoroughly modern in every way” by the Houston Post. The theatre features its original Art Deco architecture. Also, it remains a top destination for independent and foreign language films. Moviegoers can often catch an eclectic mix of Friday and Saturday midnight shows. Before the movie, stop by the River Oaks Lounge to enjoy the best martinis in town. 

Rice Cinema 

Step into Rice Cinema, where you’ll explore art in 24 frames per second. This unique can show nearly every film ever made, ranging from early silent films to Hollywood blockbusters. Some of the world’s most renowned filmmakers have walked through the doors at this locale. Their mission is to help Rice Cinema bring the community together over today’s most significant form of storytelling. The auditorium features one screen and plays movies not found anywhere else in the Houston area. 

14 Pews

Over the last nine years, 14 Pews has screened over 800 movies. Also, it created 10 short documentaries about Houston’s talented artists.
