Cinemart Cinemas and Theater Cafe, the homey movie theater at 106-03 Metropolitan Ave. in Forest Hills, will host the premiere screening of the new film “JFK: A President Betrayed” from Nov. 22 to 28 for the 50th anniversary of the late president’s assassination.

The film is a new take on the conspiracy of President John F. Kennedy’s murder in 1963, disclosing newly discovered information about the president secretly reversed official U.S policy in order to make peace with former U.S. enemies like Fidel Castro, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev and others.

Cory Taylor, a Primetime Emmy winner, is the director and executive producer for “JFK: A President Betrayed.”

“People are going to be surprised by some of the details presented in the film,” Taylor said. “The extent to which Kennedy pursued peaceful relations with his adversaries has been underestimated.”

Taylor has previously directed many other notable films like “A Quiet Revolution” (2002) starring actress Meryl Streep and “Another Way of Seeing Things” (2004), both Academy Award winners.

“JFK: A President Betrayed” is causing a ruckus in Hollywood for its unique and new sources, such as interviews with Khrushchev’s translator, Kennedy’s Russian translator and a former White House special assistant to the president.

Darin Nellis, another big name in cinema, is the co-executive producer. He commented on the making of the film with serious thought while maintaining a passionate tone.

“We live in a polarized world,” Nellis said. “At a time of government gridlock, economic uncertainty and the threat of ethnic and religious violence have many people feeling fearful about their future; when the lack of positive role models in government has prompted younger generations to dismiss politics as a waste of time, a re-examination of John F. Kennedy’s leadership and during his presidency provides reason for hope.”

This revealing film will rip away blindfolds and allow audience members to see a truth many will never know.

Even better, Queens residents can access this film quite easily at Cinemart Cinemas in Forest Hills, and maybe even find time for a Sundae at the nearby Eddie’s Sweet Shop, at 105-29 Metropolitan Ave.

Everyone wins!
