For one night only, the Magic Lantern offers a rare look inside the most controversial president ever to occupy the White House, and the criminal activity that drove him from office. An award-winning documentary, Our Nixon includes more than 500 hours of film taken by H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman and Dwight Chapin, Richard Nixon’s closest advisors and Watergate co-conspirators. Viewers are taken back to a time when idealism presided over Nixon’s presidency. Leading up to the Watergate scandal that was his ultimate downfall, the film is an intimate look at President Nixon, candidly presenting him through home movies that had not been seen in more than 40 years.
