“War is Hell” screens for JFK day at Texas Theatre

The Texas Theatre recognizes the 48th anniversary of the Kennedy Assassination Tuesday, Nov. 22, with a lineup of relevant movies.

“War is Hell” screens at 1:20 p.m. That’s the movie that was showing when Lee Harvey Oswald ducked into the theater about 1:30 p.m. without buying a ticket. It shows again at 4:45 pm.

“Cry of Battle,” the other film on the Texas Theatre’s double-feature bill the day of the assassination, screens at 2:45 and 6:10 p.m.

“Rush to Judgement,” a documentary that explores JFK conspiracy theories, screens at 8 p.m. John Slate, the Dallas City Archivist, will introduce the film. Slate has a place in pop culture trivia as the JFK conspiracy guy in “Slacker.”

At 10 p.m., the theater screens the JFK edition of its free “Tuesday Night Trash” series with “Naughty Dallas.” Released in 1964, it has scenes in Jack Ruby’s Carousel Club: “A small-town girl comes to Dallas to make it as a stripper.”
