HOUSTON - The London-based Rooftop Cinema Club is set to debut its first social outdoor cinema in Texas.

Starting Wednesday, the Houston venue will be open to the public, at BLVD Place in Uptown.

On Monday, the Cinema Club released its November movie lineup and the addition of its first-ever kid-friendly program, Rooftop Cinema Kids Club.

Next month's lineup doubles the number of films offered in October. Tickets for November went on sale starting at noon Monday.

“Before we’ve even opened, Houston has clearly told us they are excited about the films we’ve offered and the unique viewing experience they’ll soon enjoy,” says Gerry Cottle, owner and founder of Rooftop Cinema Club. “We wanted to respond in a big way for November with twice as many films, adding two screenings on the same night Thursdays through Saturdays, and introducing our new Kids Club program.”

Here are the full listings for November:
