  2. Found this article and thought you would like it. http://www.dancing-times.co.uk/DT200409/da...es200409-2.html
  3. Is the Alley theater a big deal in Houston any more? And what's it's History?
  4. I was browsing the newspaper The Rice Thresher dated October 16, 1942 and came across an article about the Little Theater located at 707 Chelsea Blvd. Little Theater Opens Tuesday An event of interest to the Institute theater-goers who have bee left in the cold since the disbanding of the Dramatic Club, will be the opening Tuesday night at 8:30 p.m. of the first production of the season by Houston Little Theater. The offering will run through Saturday night, although the last night the house will be given over in a large part to Soldiers. The play will be "The Heart of the City", by Lesley Storms, and the direction will be in charge of Dr. Friedrich Jessner. The Little Theater is located at 707 Chelsea Boulevard. Dr. Jessner, who comes to the Little Theater from the drama department of Yale University, has a wide and varied experience in the theater bot in this country and abroad. I'm not exactly sure what this is. Doesn't sound like a film theater, but a theater of the arts. Maybe this was apart of the Rice Institute's courses? I see talk about a drama club.
  5. I was looking at the newspaper The Bellaire Texan dated May 13, 1959 and came across an usual location for the Alley Theater. Back in 1959 the Alley Theatre was located at 709 Berry St. in Midtown. Now playing thru May 30 on stage Tennessee Williams Orpheus Descending directed by Nine Yance. There also used to be a Alley Theater Academy which is very cool to see.
  6. While browsing old Houston maps I noticed the Contemporary Arts Museum was at the corner of Fannin St. & N. Braeswood Blvd. The map was dated in 1950. Earlier this week I was browsing old Rice's The Thresher magazines. In an issue dated September 23, 1965 I found an add for the The Contemporary Arts Museum which was located At 6945 Fannin Street. Does anyone have any images of the old building? What replaced this structure? Is this where the TECO (then Houston Natural Gas) plant is located? TECO's history states that in 1967 the Houston Natural Gas Central Plant was built. https://tecothermalenergy.com/about/history/
  7. I didn't see this anywhere else, so here goes... A new folk-art inspired greenspace called Smither Park is being planned for the 1/2 acre lot adjacent to the Orange Show. The park's development is being sponsored by the Orange Show in memory of John H. Smither. The design is by Dan Phillips (although I can't tell if he's doing the overall park layout or just the pieces within the park). Here's the website: http://smitherpark.org/Smither_Park_Website/Welcome.html ... and a rendering (found on the site): http://smitherpark.org/Smither_Park_Website/Welcome_files/shapeimage_1.png

  13. I went to school at AI of Houston across the street. That was 7 years ago. At that time I think there were plans for apartments. 🤔
  14. One of the blogs I follow, Brand New, has done an extensive piece about CAMH's new logo, which originates from the shape of the building. Linky: feed://feeds.feedburner.com/ucllc/brandnew Here's the before and after:
  15. So I was driving down Studewood tonite and at the corner of 11th where they are rebuilding that historic building that was hit by a car, I noticed something that really pissed me off. All the bricks that are stacked outside from the original structure were tagged by guess who? It seems the crew that is working on the building was able to remove the majority of the paint but you can still see the outline of the name ROWDY. If anyone spots this moron, take a pic and call the cops. This idiot should be ashamed to call himself a Houstonian.
  16. http://ultimatefortbend.com/stories/327839-rosenberg-development-corporation-approves-agreement-with-imperial-performing-arts Rosenberg's Development Corporation agreed to the plan put forward by Sugar Land based Imperial Arts. The plan would generally allow the company to take office space near the Post Office, and would commit to restoring the old Cole Liberty Theater on Third Street. Ultimately, the goal is to create a "cultural district", sanctioned by the state's Arts Commission. And the original press release from last year... http://www.ci.rosenberg.tx.us/index.aspx?page=26&recordid=405&returnURL=%2Findex.aspx
  17. The Stages Repertory Theatre plans to move one block down from their existing location. A warehouse that currently sits on the site will receive renovations and undergo an expansion. A parking structure will also be constructed.
  18. 5-story residential building proposed near Emancipation Park.
  19. I saw on Channel 2 last night that all four Beatles, instruments and all (during their Sgt. Petter phase) will soon be standing 35 feet tall somewhere along I-10 brought to us by David Adickes. Mr. Adickes purchased the land himself. Adickes is also doing Texas Legends, in Mount Rushmore fashion, along I-10 as well. Snap!
  20. Article from Woodlands Online: The Woodlands Township and The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion look at possibility of Performing Arts Center https://www.woodlandsonline.com/npps/story.cfm?nppage=63185 "At its May 22, 2019, Board of Directors Meeting, The Woodlands Township unanimously approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The Center for the Performing Arts at The Woodlands (CWMP) regarding the possibility of creating a Performing Arts Center in The Woodlands.CWMP, better known as The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, and the Township are discussing the possibility of entering into an agreement to build, maintain and operate a Performing Arts Center near the current location of the Pavilion.In the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), members of the Pavilion Board of Directors and The Woodlands Township agree that they desire to explore further options to ascertain whether the construction, maintenance and operation of such a Center is a viable project for the Pavilion and Township to jointly pursue.The MOU is a non-binding approach such that due diligence may be conducted by the parties to determine viability of the joint development of the Center.“This is a major step in furthering the development of performing arts in The Woodlands,” said Township Chairman Gordy Bunch. “It feels right that on the day after acknowledging our founder George Mitchell’s 100th birthday this week, we are moving forward with one of his wishes to have a performing arts theater in The Woodlands.”
  21. I'm surprised I wasn't able to find this on HAIF. I ran a few searches, but nothing came up. Apologies if this is a repeat thread... Swamplot reported in May that the Univ. of St. Thomas will be building a new performance arts center near the Menil campus. The article indicates that the building will be four stories and just under 100k square feet. Here's the accompanying rendering: University of St. Thomas's Performing Arts Center Moving in Next to Menil Campus
