In the art film world, it doesn't get much better than a seal of approval from Criterion. Purveyor of fine home entertainment product, co-operator (with TCM) of the FilmStruck streaming service, Criterion also produces a series called Art House America. This month, the series spotlights one of Dallas cinema's crown jewels, the Texas Theatre. The ten-minute film delves into the theater's history, including its role in the Lee Harvey Oswald saga; its place in the Oak Cliff community; and its mission as an exhibitor of repertory films, special events and generally idiosyncratic programming. It's a worthy work on a worthy subject, and you can watch it right here, and at criterion.com.
