Kind of thinking this won't get many replies, but it's a neat topic, at least to me. Do you know of the opening date and first movies shown at a local movie theatre? I've found two. Name: Greenspoint 5 (actually called the Cinema Center at Greenspoint Mall in its first advertisement) Date: Thursday, Aug. 5, 1976 First Movie: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, which started at 11:45 a.m. The other four features were Lifeguard, Bugs Bunny Superstar, Blazing Saddles and Ode to Billy Joe. Tickets were $1.50 until 1:30 p.m. Odd how only Lifeguard (starring Sam Elliott and the always lovely Anne Archer, BTW) was the only new movie of the bunch, and it had premiered nationwide two weeks earlier (according to IMDB). Ode to Billy Joe had been out for two months. Bugs Bunny and Cuckoo's Nest had both been in circulation for 8 months or more, and Blazing Saddles came out in early 1974. Clearly the movie business has sure changed. Name: Deauville Date: Friday, Jul. 11, 1975 First Movie: The Great Waldo Pepper, which started at 5 p.m. The other feature at this two-screen theatre was something called Beyond the Door. Tickets were $1.25 until 6 p.m. IMDB says Beyond the Door is essentially a poor man's Rosemary's Baby. It was made in 1974. I wasn't able to find the other Greenspoint area movie theatre - The I-45 Drive In. Ran out of time at the library. Might get that on another run, if anyone's interested.
Weird that a project of this scale hasn't made going up, but with it being near Greenspoint I'm not surprised. This is well into construction and actually is supposed to be finished August 16th. In 2016 Houston was selected to host the BMX World Championships, but we didn't have a facility to host, so instead we built one, of course! Really neat project outside the loop. Because of its size and importance I thought it was "going up" material. If you are a BMX or skateboarder this will definitely be your thing. This is located on Greens Bayou. Really awesome project.

Bisnow posted a picture showing Parkway Properties sponsers and a couple of pictures in the back showing 400 north belt, but also a rendering to to something in the red circle. Could this be a tower rendering for Greenspoint?\ http://www.bisnow.com/commercial-real-estate/houston/greenspoints-exciting-future/
