It’s a Vintage Screening with a unique twist as we screen the original 1974 adaptation of the classic whodunnit Murder On The Orient Express. Take your seats in Averys cellars, accompanied by a mouth-watering selection of wines picked by Averys resident experts. For this screening, in keeping with the mystery theme, the wines will be tasted blind and their identities revealed at the end of the night – so can you work out them before the grand reveal…?
Guests enjoy sparkling wine on arrival, with bread and cheese courtesy of Arch House Deli to enjoy during the film, along with four carefully chosen wines that are served at points throughout the film (details announced soon).

THEY SAY: “This is easily the best screen adaptation of an Agatha Christie whodunnit and, for those unfamiliar with either book or film, the solution will take your breath away.” – David Parkinson, Radio Times, 2017
WE SAY: The original film version and the best (with no disrespect to Kenneth Branagh and his magnificent moustache). An all-star cast – including Ingrid Bergman’s Oscar-winning performance – bring this macabre period piece to life in stunning style. It remains a sublime classic – even if you know whodunnit!
