Trips & Adventures – 1 March 2018
Due to the inclement weather we decided to postpone the walk in Marple and instead we went to see “Murder on the Orient Express” at the Odeon cinema, Manchester Great Northern. The Odeon operate a “Silver Cinema” which is the series of film screenings for people over 55. Tickets are £3.00 each and include tea or coffee and biscuits before the film.
A lavish, luxurious train journey through Europe turns deadly in “Murder On The Orient Express”, forcing legendary detective Hercule Poirot to solve the case and find out whodunit.
The motive is mysterious, and practically everyone on the train is a suspect. It’s a fiendishly difficult puzzle to solve, and Poirot’s now in a race against time to catch the killer before they can make their escape.
Agatha Christie’s classic novel comes to life in “Murder On The Orient Express”, with an all-star cast including Judi Dench, Josh Gad, Daisy Ridley and Kenneth Branagh as Hercule Poirot himself.
On the whole we enjoyed the film but the plot was a bit confusing at first.
