Houston on the big screen – Hot Town, Cool City movie premiere


I’m excited for the Hot Town, Cool City movie to premiere this weekend at MFAH (showtimes here).

On the surface Houston is about big oil, NASA, big medicine, big sports, big freeways, hot summers, and humidity. Behind that facade is a network of Cool– Houston is down to earth but still international, sophisticated, cutting edge, avant-garde and world class. The new documentary, Hot Town, Cool City, attempts to answer the question- Why Houston?

The Hot Town, Cool City site has a great interactive map feature for you to submit your fave Houston spots and comment on others. I’ve grown to really love this city and can’t wait to sit next to other Houstonians and watch the story of our city’s hidden gems and treasures.

So we want to ask you: WHY HOUSTON??

    I came to Houston to be closer to family, but stayed here because I love the technology community and the complete randomness of what’s available here entertainment, eating and shopping-wise.

    This may not be the last place I live, but I’m quite satisfied for now.

    Ooo.. thanks for the reminder. I’ve been looking foward to this movie for a long time.
