Morning Matinee, April 29


For matinee lovers, there is a new version of Death On The Nile (M), directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh.

It was supposed to be a relaxing vacation for the famous detective, Hercule Poirot.

A river cruise on the Nile, should be a time to put his crime-solving career on hold, but as usual, there is no rest for Agatha Christie’s intrepid detective.

There is a killer on the loose, a crime nobody can solve, what better way for Poirot to spend his vacation.

This great-value movie deal includes morning tea for just $10. The film will screen at 11am with complement­ary morning tea served from 10.30am.
