Tomorrow, the film to be shown in the Public Hall is the latest version of Murder on the Orient Express.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh, it is based on the Agatha Christie novel.
In 1934, famous detective Hercule Poirot solves a theft at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The obsessive compulsive Belgian--who seeks balance in life, and considers his case-solving ability to see a lie amid truth a curse--wants to rest in Istanbul but must return to London for another case. His friend Bouc, director of the Orient Express, offers him a room on the train.
Poirot refuses sinister businessman Samuel Ratchett's offer to hire him as his bodyguard during the three-day journey, as Ratchett has received threatening letters from an unknown party. That night Poirot hears strange noises coming from Ratchett's compartment, and sees someone in a red kimono running down the hallway. An avalanche derails the train and strands the passengers.
The next morning Poirot learns Ratchett was murdered during the night after being stabbed a dozen times.
