HOUSTON, TX — The owner of Houston’s Bayou Place center is in negotiations for a new operator to open a cinema by this summer in the space formerly occupied by the Angelika Film Center there which closed quite suddenly in August of 2010. Reportedly, Robert Redford’s Sundance Cinemas, Landmark, and Alamo Drafthouse have all been approached.

Sundance officials could not be reached for comment.

Drew Coleman, director of operations for a new five-bar concept that will open up in Bayou Place next month, also tells CultureMap he has been told that a new theater is scheduled to open in July.
