A se­lec­tion of clas­sic crime films will be screened at a 1950s pop-up cin­ema in the grounds of the Devon hol­i­day home of Agatha Christie – dubbed the Queen of Crime – this De­cem­ber.

The films will be screened on se­lected dates from Satur­day De­cem­ber 8 un­til Mon­day De­cem­ber 31. There will also be an exclusive night at the movies and book­sign­ing with best-sell­ing crime author, So­phie Han­nah.

Belinda Smith, vis­i­tor ex­pe­ri­ence man­ager at Green­way, said: “The 1950s were the hey­day of Christie’s fam­ily hol­i­days at Green­way and the golden age of cin­ema.

“This Christ­mas we’re recre­at­ing a 1950s fam­ily Christ­mas in the house, and styling the pop-up cin­ema with 1950s touches.”
