“Oswald’s” restored Texas Theatre to reopen January 2008
DALLAS, TX — After nine years and 3.5 million dollars the Texas Theatre in Dallas will reopen on January 19th. Lee Harvey Oswald was captured at the Texas Theatre after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The theatre will show the PBS documentary, “Oswald’s Ghost,” for the opening.
Standing just a few feet from the seat where Lee Harvey Oswald was captured, Oak Cliff Foundation Chairman Monte Anderson said the nine-year, $3.5 million renovation is nearly complete.
“This blighted theater what it was, back in action, is very important for the culture of this neighborhood and the restoration of this neighborhood,” Anderson said.
