    Learn All About the Texas Cocktail Scene in This New Book
    Discussions of the state of the U.S. cocktail scene tend to focus on cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and New Orleans, with Austin dominating the Lone Star State chatter. But in the last 10 years there has been an awakening in the Houston cocktail scene-and with it, Texas on the whole.

Typically this phrase precedes a stunt, mishap, or otherwise social-media-meme-worthy epic fail. But in the picture perfect world of Aurora Picture Show, it translates into community support, successful collaboration, and artistic experimentation.

    Dread it. Run from it. Summer still arrives. In time you will know what it's like to sweat from places you didn't know could sweat, to want so desperately to be cool, and to fail all the same.

Aurora Picture Show's first ever public scree...

Aurora Picture Show's first ever public screening in June of 1998 was Extremely Shorts–an open call program of all sorts of independent film and video work with the only stipulation being that they were 3 minutes or less. Bill Daniel's "History of Texas City" collage film was included in that first program 20 years ago. (And soon after, Bill began bringing radical West Coast film programs to Aurora.) Extremely Shorts is still going strong as Houston's funkiest film festival, including bite size moving image madness from around the globe. Don't miss this year's Extremely Shorts fest at Aurora this coming Friday and Saturday! #Aurora20

    Catch the good times rolling on the rivers
    Just upstream from a wicked little roller coaster of a rapid in the South Llano River sits a deep, long, fish-filled pool that, over more than 20 years of never-regular-enough visits, has invariably shone as a highlight on a waterway that can gift anglers with an almost unbroken string of memorable moments.
