There was a shoe store next to the theater in 1963. The store manager saw LHO enter the theater without buying a ticket and called the police. To date, the manager has not been linked with the Mafia, CIA, Cubans, Freemasons, PTA or any other shadow groups.

I visited the Texas Theater in August 2005 and was able to tour the interior which is under renovation. The upper balcony seats have been removed, the first level seats including the seat Lee Harvey Oswald was captured in are still in place. The whole place is rather dusty and appears to have been vacant for quite some time.

The exterior sign (in place during the 60’s) is in bad shape. Hopefully, the restoration will proceed.

Hi Quixote… The theater had 2 war movies in a double feature on November 22, 1963 when Oswald was captured … “Cry of Battle” with Van Heflin and “War is Hell.” Both were first run films and made in 1963.

Does anybody know what was playing there the day Oswald was captured?
