Major movies often film on location, including right here in Houston. Over the years, many of the city's restaurants and attractions have appeared in everything from comedies to dramas. Today, you can visit some of the most popular sites that made it onto the big screen. Here are three locations in movies near our Houston apartments you don't want to miss:
Brennan's of Houston
At Brennan's of Houston, you may sit in the exact spot where Garrett and Aurora ate lunch in Terms of Endearment. The restaurant even named the dining room after the movie. Brennan's began serving diners in 1967. It is now one of the city's premier dining destinations and is known for its Southern hospitality and Texas Creole cuisine. Menu offerings include beef tips Diane, grilled Gulf fish, and Creole spiced roasted half chicken.
Miller Outdoor Theatre
If you've seen the 2014 film Boyhood, then you may have recognized the Miller Outdoor Theatre. Found in Hermann Park, it's a theater unlike any other. That's because its culturally diverse shows are always free to the public. You can enjoy musical theatre, ballet performances, and so much more.
Johnson Space Center
One of the highest-grossing movies in history, the Dark Side of the Moon was partially filmed at the Johnson Space Center. A scene set in the late 1960s follows the control center in Houston as it works to recover a spacecraft. During a visit to Space Center Houston, you can enjoy a tram tour featuring the historic control center and other fascinating areas.
