This historic theater -- best known as the place where Lee Harvey Oswald was apprehended after assassinating JFK -- was revived in a major way in 2010 and is now known as the place to catch obscure indie and horror flicks, silent movies and 35-mm versions of newer flicks. The authentically retro lobby bar offers a full menu of drinks and an old vinyl soundtrack and plays host to various events from art shows to burlesque.
