In 1966, the documentary Rush to Judgment presented for the first time a simple, concise legal argument that the Warren Commission was hiding something, suggesting a broader conspiracy.Lee Harvey Oswald could not have single-handedly killed President John F. Kennedy.

Director Emile de Antonio and lawyer Mark Lane recorded unpolished, first-hand interviews from witnesses with direct proximity to the murders—but who were not given a platform in the official inquiry.

For a subject that has been rehashed and sensationalized so many times in the intervening 60 years, this documentary brings fresh clarity and presents a cool-headed argument that is untouched by time. Newly restored in 4K.

Tickets: $15 (Members from $10)
