Video: The Riveting History Of The Texas Theatre
This theater has a history that’s as fascinating as the movies it shows on the screen.
This story is part of Big Wonder–our series that explores uniquely larger-than-life stories in Texas.
Originally built by eccentric film producer and aviator Howard Hughes, the Texas Theatre has a history that’s equally as riveting as the films it screens, as this is where Lee Harvey Oswald was captured after his assassination of President Kennedy. Despite undergoing a major facelift, it was remodeled again to its original facade to film a movie about JFK. Today, it’s one of the most storied landmarks in Dallas and a great place to catch a movie showing.
