The Jeremy Lin era in Houston got underway last year. Linsanity's time in Houston begins now.

The movie premieres Friday at two different Houston-area locations. Tickets are available online for the AMC theatres on Dunvale Ave. and also at the Sundance Cinemas on Texas St.

The film documents Lin's unconventional path from Palo Alto to his historic NBA breakout with the Knicks in 2012, a time period that will be forever known as Linsanity. The point guard will be entering his second season with the Rockets. He averaged 13.4 points last year in his first year with the club, showing steady improvement throughout to where he averaged 17.3 points and 6.9 assists in April and helped lead the Rockets to a playoff berth.

CSN Houston's own Howard Chen is emceeing a Friday night mixer at Sundance Cinemas held at 7pm before the 7:30pm showing at that theatre. The mixer is being hosted by the Texas chapter of the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) with free tickets for the following week being given away there. Information on how to qualify for the drawing is on AAJA Texas' Twitter page @aajatexas.
