    State seeks longer red-snapper season in federal proposal

Aurora Picture Show added 2 new photos.

Join us this Sunday afternoon (3:30pm) for a screening and reception with New York-based artists Jennifer and Kevin McCoy. Their latest film, Broker, is an experimental, musical rumination on the world of high-end real estate, shot in a 77th floor apartment in one of New York City’s Trump Towers. Their piece Mussafah (shown in the space before and after the screening) captures a very different environment, slowly tracking through an industrial area of Abu Dhabi.

  • Lanier Middle School reviewed by a student

    It was ok, but it could have better. I think all the problems in this school is not necessarily the school's fault, but the district's fault. HISD only cares about the student's grades, and not about teaching them the true meaning of learning. Although this may be rated one of the top schools in Texas, it is certainly not the best. From my own experience, I think I have learned more from my run-down, not-as-wealthy school in New Jersey rather than this one. I feel as if this system is highly corrupt, which is why I do not rate it 5 stars.
