Lee Harvey Oswald's Matinee Seat
This 1931 movie house sports a curved sign spelling out T-E-X-A-S. On Nov. 22, 1963, the Texas Theatre is where Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Oswald had just gunned down police officer J. D. Tippet in Oak Cliff, then ducked into the theater, without paying, during the screening of the film "War is Hell."
Since then the theater has gone through multiple owners, but every one of them has faithfully marked the seat where Oswald sat -- or, to be precise, the seat currently occupying the spot in the theater where Oswald sat. His original seat was confiscated as evidence in 1963 and never returned.
Director Oliver Stone footed the bill for exterior restoration of the Texas Theatre for his 1991 film JFK, and managed to weave it into his story as a pre-arranged meeting place for Oswald conspirators.
