The Texas Theatre
Opened in 1931 in Oak Cliff, The Texas Theatre is known for its “Venetian” design style, including opera boxes in the auditorium under a full night sky, fountains, projected clouds on the ceiling, an organ, and a giant chandelier. It's the third-largest theatre in Dallas. On November 22, 1963 at approximately 1:45 p.m., nearly 15 Dallas police officers converged on the Texas Theatre in search of a man who had entered without paying. That man was Lee Harvey Oswald – murder suspect in the slaying of Officer J.D. Tippit and later President John F. Kennedy’s accused lone assassin. He ducked into the theatre during an in-progress showing of War Is Hell.
