We love our city. We also love that our city has been the setting for quite a few incredible films. We celebrate Houston's place in cinematic history with a series of films that - while completely different from one another - make us proud to be Houstonians!

I COME IN PEACE is Houston’s own little claim to fame when it comes to ‘80s (well, early, early ‘90s to be exact) action films. Dolph Lundgren stars as a Houston cop who doesn’t play by the rules. As action movie logic dictates, this wildcard must team up with a straight-laced FBI agent (“Dream On”’s Brian Benben) to take down a drug-dealing alien who has come to earth with flying killer CDs. Mmmmm… yes.

That sound you hear? It's your brain screaming that it wants to see this movie immediately. Houston is the fourth-largest city in the country – of course we deserve to have a movie featuring MIT scholar (seriously!) Dolph Lundgren kicking some extraterrestrial ass!

Rare 35mm screening!
