Do River Oaks

in Life, River Oaks, Do

It may not have all the bells and whistles of a new multiplex, but the Art Deco River Oaks Theatre (2009 W. Gray St.) built in 1939 does show all the films you can’t see anywhere else. Consider channeling your inner Goth at their monthly “Rocky Horror Picture Show” extravaganza.

ROCO anyone? The River Oaks Chamber Orchestra (1973 W. Gray St.) is a 40-piece group that performs at venues around town, including St. John the Divine.

You may not be a member of the River Oaks Country Club (1600 River Oaks Blvd.), but if you know someone, you might be able to swing a round at their Donald Ross-designed golf course.

Date night, girls’ night out or something to occupy the kids this summer, The Mad Potter (1963 W. Gray St.) works for them all. Don’t panic if you over paint. Even something that looks like a Rorschach test comes out of their kiln looking masterpiece-ish. 

Midway between River Oaks and Montrose, Stages Repertory Theatre (3201 Allen Parkway) is an intimate venue that makes watching one of their innovative, oftentimes quirky shows that much more enjoyable.
