Embezzled pensions! Murder by crossbow! Legacy businesses! Jessica Fletcher takes on a New York City-based murder mystery in our third annual screening of a preservation-themed Murder, She Wrote episode. The closing of the family-owned Larkin’s Department Store leads Jessica Fletcher to attempt to broker a deal that will sell the historic building to the Museum of Contemporary Culture (she’s on the board of course!). However the deal falls apart when someone is found dead on the premises and soon Jessica finds herself trying to solve a double murder with no shortage of suspects, all while attempting to preserve the business for its cultural value and the careers of long-time employees.

As in previous installments of Preservation She Wrote, Archive Project Board Member Susan De Vries was on hand for commentary and trivia (with prizes)! 

This screening was part of People Preserving Place: A Film Festival presented by the New York Preservation Archive Project in celebration of NYC Landmarks50+ Alliance‘s “Preservation Month” in April 2017.
