Who Assassinated John F. Kennedy?
By David Johanssen
Those of us who were alive in 1963 still remember where we were and what we were doing when we first heard that JFK had been shot. It has been over fifty years since the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the majority of Americans still believe there was a conspiracy surrounding his murder. There are many questions that still remain about the way the investigation was handled and about the final determination of the Warren Commission: that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. Over the years, there have been many theories about who killed Kennedy: the Mafia, Fidel Castro, the Soviet Union, the Military Industrial Complex, the CIA, the Illuminati, or the New World Order in collusion with the Federal Reserve. Some of these theories propose that there was another shooter on the grassy knoll, while others believe that Oswald was just a pawn in a larger conspiracy.

Join us for a discussion on this compelling topic Tuesday, November 25, at 4pm as Shelter Theater continues its documentary series with JFK—3 Shots That Changed America. This is a fantastic documentary by the History Channel that does not take sides. The evening news anchors had, by 1963, become the trusted voices of the public’s lifeline to national and world events. The likes of Walter Cronkite, David Brinkley, John Chancellor, and Harry Reasoner brought to life the rapidly unfolding events surrounding the tragedy, as impassioned viewers could only be spectators from their living rooms. 40 pesos.
Friday, November 21, at 7:30pm Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Live in Gatorville 2008. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers return to Gainesville, Florida where it all started, to play their first hometown show in 13 years. 50 pesos.
Sunday, November 23, at 5pm join us for an exhilarating presentation of Gigi, one of the greatest musicals ever to be adapted to film. Starring Maurice Chevalier and directed by Vincente Minnelli, this musical won nine Oscars in 1958. Weary of the conventions of Parisian society, a rich playboy and a youthful courtesan-in-training enjoy a platonic friendship, but it may not stay platonic for long. 50 pesos.
Wednesday, November 26, at 7pm join us for Casablanca starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. One avid fan asserts, “the thing that makes Casablanca great is that it speaks to that place in each of us that seeks some kind of inspiration or redemption.” On some level, every character in the story receives the same kind of catharsis and their lives are irrevocably changed. 50 pesos.
Friday, November 28, Shelter Theater presents The Beatles Live at the Washington Coliseum. This was the very first Beatles concert in the United States; it took place on February 11, 1964. George, John, Paul and Ringo give an explosive performance in front of thousands of screaming fans intoxicated with Beatle mania. 50 pesos.
