Kicking off our “Whodunnit?” film series! In this the original 1974 classic adapted from Agatha Christie’s classic novel, Director Sidney Lumet gathers an A-list cast for this classic murder mystery featuring Albert Finney, Ingrid Bergman, Lauren Bacall, Sean Connery, Anthony Perkins, Jaqueline Bisset and many more.

Having concluded a case, detective Hercule Poirot (Finney) settles into what he expects will be a relaxing journey home aboard the Orient Express. But when an unpopular billionaire is murdered en route, Poirot takes up the case, and everyone on board the famous train is a suspect. Using an avalanche blocking the tracks to his advantage, Poirot gradually realizes that many of the passengers have revenge as a motive, and he begins to home in on the culprit.

Screening will be introduced with a special Whodunnit Murder Mystery presentation.
