Motion-picture sound engineer David Brownlow will tell you he’s not so much interested in the Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories as he is a student of history. “There’s just an amazing cast of characters that have a role in this story,” he said. One of them is Jack Ruby, the man who killed Lee Harvey Oswald. Brownlow worked on the sound for the 1992 movie Ruby (starring Danny Aiello as the nightclub owner who assassinated Oswald). His interest in those world-changing days in November 1963 has led him to investigate the personalities and beliefs that have fascinated Americans in the last 50 years.

Brownlow joins radio personality Dwight Loop and writer-filmmaker Dean Balsamo at the Jean Cocteau Cinema (418 Montezuma St.) at 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 22 — the anniversary of the Kennedy assassination — to discuss the historical importance of the event and the various theories and myths that it has spawned. There will be film clips, personal anecdotes, and possibly a few surprises. The event is provocatively titled JFK Assassination: 50 Years Under the Coup. Brownlow, who — like Secretary of State John Kerry and most Americans — believes Oswald did not act alone, fears that after this year’s anniversary, interest in the event and its many implications will disappear. “That’s the purpose of the evening, to bring people together for possibly the last time to discuss the Kennedy assassination. After this, I’m afraid that as the players die off, as the baby boomers age, it will just fade away.” Tickets are $8. Call 505-466-5528.
