Often surprising and always intriguing, Movies Houstonians Love has become one of the Museum’s most popular film series. Local luminaries from different fields—the arts, politics, sports, education, restaurants, medicine, and beyond—share anecdotes from their personal moviegoing histories, and then take a seat to enjoy the incomparable experience of watching the film on the big screen, with an audience.
For the 2015–16 edition, each presenter chose a favorite comedy. The season opened with Houston Chronicle columnist Ken Hoffman on September 28, followed by architect Jim Furr on October 26; Stephanie Saint Sanchez, founder of Señorita Cinema, on November 23; author Mat Johnson on February 1; and author Gwendolyn Zepeda on March 7.
