Rare John Huston film commemorates 50th anniversary of JFK assassination

Add event to my calendar

The Cinematheque is commemorating the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination with the John Huston rarity, We Were Strangers on Thursday, November 21 at 8:30pm and Friday, November 22 at 7:30pm. Lee Harvey Oswald reputedly watched this little-known John Huston film two separate times on TV in the weeks before he shot JFK on 11/22/63. (It "greatly excited" him, according to one historian.) Set in 1933, the movie tells of a group of Cuban revolutionaries who plot to overthrow their country's corrupt dictator. Jennifer Jones, John Garfield, and Pedro Armendáriz star. 35mm. 106 min.

Regular admission prices apply: $9; Cinematheque members $7; age 25 & under $6.
