|Mayor Tom Leppert and Delia Jasso joined the Aviation Cinemas gang and Stuart Sikes (in the green sweater) officially re-open the Texas Theatre|
I did indeed take the 7-year-old who lives in my house to the Texas last night for its official re-opening
, where Mayor Tom declared that the Oak Cliff movie house is "just as important" to the cultural life of Dallas as the Wyly or Winspear or Meyerson, how 'bout that
. Turnout among the familiar faces (Janis Burklund
, James Faust
, Jason Roberts
actor Ron Jackson
, Delia Jasso
... pretty much all the J's) was impressive; so too the theater itself, for those who haven't yet visited (and, based upon my talk with Aviation Cinemas CEO Barak Epstein yesterday, that's most of you).
I let the boy loose with the camera. A few more of his photos follow.
|That's Ron Jackson at right. He played the FBI spokesman who appears throughout Oliver Stone's JFK.|
