Cinema Houston celebrates a century of movie theatres and moviegoing in Texas's largest city. It traces the history of Houston movie theatres from their early twentieth-century beginnings in vaudeville and nickelodeon houses to the opulent downtown theatres built in the 1920s through to the multicinemas and megaplexes that have come to dominate the movie scene since the late 1960s.
