November 22nd, 1963 was a day
that changed the world forever – when young American President
John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. We follow
in almost real time a handful of individuals forced to make
split-second decisions after this incomprehensible event that
would change their lives and forever alter our world’s
landscape: the young doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital,
the chief of the Dallas Secret Service, the unwitting
cameraman who captured what has become the most watched and
examined film in history, the FBI Agents who had gunman Lee
Harvey Oswald within their grasp and Vice President Lyndon
Johnson who had to take control of a country in a moment’s
notice. Parkland is the true story behind a tragic day in
history you thought you knew, but didn’t, and couldn’t, until
now… 50 years later.
Come enjoy a movie on our big
screen. No registration required, we’ll provide the popcorn,
bring your own beverage. This movie is rated PG-13, no one
under the age of 13 will be admitted without an adult.
