Once the site of a famous arrest, this theater is a fixture of the neighborhood. From current flicks to iconic classics this self-aware theater hosts a hopping bar and all the hipsters one can handle.
A visit to this historic theater to watch a movie or special event will have the family feel as if they have stepped back in time. This is a piece of Dallas history that has been brought back to life, having gained historical fame as being the location of Lee Oswald’s hideout and consequent arrest…
Iconic historic theater where Lee Harvey Oswald was apprehended the day he assassinated JFK. Eclectic movie programming and special performances almost every night. Cash bar, snacks, and sometimes a dj spinning vinyl.
This iconic theater is a good place to see a movie and the bar has some interesting people watching.
This is where they found Lee Harvey Oswald. Check it out. Even if you aren't seeing a show there, grab a drink at the bar there and give yourself a tour. Its "weird" good and still has old art and furnishings in it.
