Hollywood director and Houston native Wes Anderson chose St. John’s School -- his very own high school -- as the backdrop for the fictional prep school in his 1998 movie Rushmore starring Bill Murray. Movie buffs can also visit the house where Aurora lived in Terms of Endearment or recreate the lunch scene between Aurora (played by Shirley MacLaine) and Garrett (Jack Nicholson) at Brennan’s restaurant.
Brad Pitt and Sean Penn caused quite a stir in 2008 when they were seen shooting scenes in downtown Houston for their soon-to-be-released movie The Tree of Life, which is now in post-production.
