1524 Sul Ross, Houston, TX 77006

Worship film? This micro-cinema, housed in a little white 1924 church, gives literal meaning to the phrase and passion. Congregations of moviegoers sit in pews in an intimate environment that's part theater, part art space. Offbeat indie and art films—by the likes of Tony Oursler, Joseph Beuys, Bruce Nauman, and Laurie Anderson—play along with multimedia performances. Though Aurora is a bit remote, a crowd of edgy hipsters finds its way there, and the pre- and post-film conversations can be as stimulating and provocative as what's shown on the screen.
