OK given to reopen theater where Lee Harvey Oswald was captured

(Dallas-AP) -- A Dallas City Council committee has endorsed a plan to renovate a building where police arrested Lee Harvey Oswald after President Kennedy was killed.

The proposal would mean fixing up the 69-year-old Texas Theater.

The project would use $1.7 million in federal funds and $600,000 in private money.

The theater has been closed since 1998.

The building would also be owned by the Oak Cliff Foundation and managed by Dallas Summer Musicals, which hopes to use the building as a community center with live performances.

A public hearing is Thursday. The Dallas City Council is expected to vote on the plan June 14th.

J-F-K was assassinated on November 22nd of 1963.
