Abraham, Martin and Ossie
You've visited the Book Depository, the Grassy Knoll and the X in the street at least a hundred times. You've listened to all the facts, bought the memorabilia and stood in the window. But the conspiracy still lingers: Did the government dye John F. Kennedy black to hide him from us or not? The only way to decide is to soak up some more knowledge. This weekend, see JFK as portrayed by Ossie Davis in Bubba Ho-Tep. It's much more entertaining than that other JFK movie where Kevin Costner put on some round-framed glasses and tried to act skinny. (Why was that movie 30 hours long? Does every Costner film have to be longer than Dances With Wolves?) The movieÃ¢â¬âwhich offers the only JFK conspiracy theory that makes any senseÃ¢â¬âplays midnight Friday and Saturday at the Inwood Theatre, 5458 W. Lovers Lane. By the time the credits roll, you'll have your JFK mystery solved, and Bruce Campbell (of Evil Dead fame) will have kicked some mummy ass as old-and-busted Elvis. Tickets are $8.
