Yes. My dad Reuben primarily worked at the Hampton Rd. Drive In, but also worked two days a week at the Texas Theater. He was there when they arrested Oswald.
John passed away in 1992 and my dad died in 1984.
I went to many “Kid Shows” there on Saturday mornings during 1950’s.and 1960’s. My friends from Margaret B. Henderson Elementary School would meet there and see such movies as “Beast from 20,000 Fathoms”, and “House on Haunted Hill.” My brother John White worked there as a projectionist on his days off from working at the Wynnewood theater.
My father Reuben White was the projectionist at the Texas theater the day Oswald was arrested there.
My brother John White was the projectionist at the Wynnewood form 1965 until 1980. I have such great memories of the theater, including my first date in 1966.
