Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express

Climb aboard the Orient Express! Destination… MURDER. It’s winter 1934, and a luxury train, the Orient Express, is full of passengers. When a snowdrift stops the train, one of the passengers is found dead in his locked compartment. It’s up to one passenger, the famous detective, Hercule Poirot, to solve this bizarre case before the killer strikes again. Join us for the ultimate whodunit… but don’t reveal the culprit to others.
