Best Non-Theatre Film Venue: Cinema East at the French Legation

What is better than a warm summer night spent outside with some of the best independent films of the year? Add a delicious picnic and your furriest canine companions. You really can’t beat it. Get there early to talk and drink with friends on the beautiful grounds of the French Legation Museum. The screen is huge and located perfectly at the bottom of the hill which means that you don't have to struggle to see over someone's head. Cinema East screens the latest works from rising indie stars such as Lawrence Michael Levine, Sophia Takal, Onur Tukel, and Amy Seimetz. The film starts when the sun goes down, and oh boy, is there nothing better than a movie under the big Texas sky?
