Chronicles of Houston: The Last Picture Shows

In Sunday's Houston Chronicle, arts editor Lisa Gray neatly balances wit and reportage while suggesting ways to save two endangered Art Deco moviehouses: The River Oaks 3, the city's oldest functioning moving picture palace, and the Alabama, which was successfully converted into a Bookstop store several years back. Unfortunately, both theaters may be demolished by developers in the not-so-distant future.

Also in the Sunday Chronicle: Entertainment writer Louis B. Parks weighs in with a fascinating profile of Allen Coulter, the Texas-born director of Hollywoodland.
