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!

Our I Heart Houston series concludes with James L. Brooks' Texas-sized tearjerker. Shirley MacClaine and Debra Winger star in a story of a mother and daughter who march to different drummers. Beginning with Emma's marriage, Aurora shows how difficult and loving she can be. The movie covers several years of their lives as each finds different reasons to go on living and find joy. Jack Nicholson, Jeff Daniels and Danny DeVito co-star. Bring tissues and your mother or daughter and join us in a sniffle-filled 30th anniversary screening of Brooks’ classic.
