The Film that Killed Kennedy 

When: Thu., Nov. 21 2013
To commemmorate the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination — and as an alternative to the sappy History Channel special Killing Kennedy, based on the book by Bill O’Reilly and starring Rob Lowe — the Cinematheque will show We Were Strangers. It’s a film that has nothing to do with the JFK assassination itself. It’s a John Huston historical film from 1949 about Cuban revolutionaries trying to overthrow a corrupt dictator. So what’s the JFK significance? Lee Harvey Oswald reportedly watched the film twice on TV in the weeks leading up to the assassination; it reportedly “excited” him. See what effect the film has on you tonight at 8:30 and then again tomorrow evening at 7:30. Tickets are $9. (Sam Allard)
