I checked out the Houston Cinema Arts Festival with little expectation and ended up having a blast. Solid programming, but little to no public awareness. You can skip getting a pass and buy tickets to individual screenings and still get into most of them.

Thanks for the heads up. Pumped to see Room again. My wife hasn't seen it yet.

Took the family to the natural science museum today and we were blown away. Last time we visited was July, but already so much has changed. The African wildlife exhibit is amazing: dozen or so huge scenes that are wonderfully executed, including one with a leopard guarding his kill in a tree. The new gem and minerals exhibit is never ending (one of my wife's favorites). We also checked out the brand new 8k planetarium and it's obviously a vast improvement over the original. Add the new Lego Block Party zone where you build and compete, and there's a whole day to be had just on new stuff. Of course we also still enjoy their huge dino hall, too. If you're looking for something "new" in Houston, give the HMNS another look.

Thanks for the post. I love the planetarium and didn't know they upgraded. Which show(s) did you see? Out of the ones that are currently playing, I like Starry Night Express, Black Holes, and the Pink Floyd show. Haven't seen Dynamic Earth or Dark Universe. The African wildlife exhibit sounds cool too. The museum district is one of the best things about living in Houston and a lot of folks don't utilize it or even know about it. Most exhibits are free on Thursdays and the Menil Collection is always free. I recently checked out the Surrealism show there. They have a Dalí on loan from The Dalí Museum in Florida and they built a show around it with paintings from their own collection including some impressive Yves Tanguy and Max Ernst paintings. It runs until June 19th.

MFAH currently has the Sculpted In Steel show with art deco automobiles and cars from 1929-1940, and a Deco Nights: Evenings in the Jazz Age show with paintings from the era. The cars are impressive in person; really heavy duty. They're on display until May 30th.

The cars are awesome. We definitely want to check that out. I haven't been down to the arts exhibits really since my college days. I spent a lot of time at the Menil and have fond memories of it. The wife and I visited the mfah back in our dating days, so we're due another visit. Our museum trips lately have been divided between the Children's and the Zoo, but the kids are getting to the point where we could probably drag them to an art museum and they'd only protest till they got there.

We saw Dark Universe on the older planetarium and it was a great film in a poor theater. This time we saw the starry night express and I was underwhelmed by the film, but the theater is top quality. I voted to see another show, but I was vetoed. There really is a lot to do. We still didn't get to see any of the 3D films (we saw the Cousteau deep ocean film last time, it's great), and we skipped the butterfly house, gardens, park, and gift shop.

My only complaint about the HMNS is the bottom floor. The hard sciences are largely ignored down there, as in the exhibits haven't been touched in decades. The space exhibit is still sporting that sad mission control setup. It's just as boring now as it was when we were elementary kids. The lego area livens up one corner, but it's a paid exhibit and only one small step.
