Join us on the red carpet for the premiere of The King of Crimes, a cinematic stageplay experience. The Aaron Burr treason trial in John Marshall's court is one of America's most important chapters. Just three years after the deadly Hamilton duel, President Thomas Jefferson had Aaron Burr charged with treason for plotting to carve out a kingdom for himself from parts of Louisiana and Mexico. The ensuing "trial of the century" in 1807 Richmond, VA, captivated a young nation! Accusations of treason. Claims of presidential privilege. The rule of law. On the big screen one night only.
Price: $12 for movie only; $25 for members of JMF, VMHC or WCVE PBS
