KLRU-Q’s Saturday Night at the Movies presents a full-length movie every Saturday night, plus extra content that gives the evening an exciting spin. Here is a peek of what this Saturday has in store:
8:00pm – Masterpiece Mystery! Presents: Poirot X: Murder On The Orient Express
David Suchet (Henry VIII, The Way We Live Now) stars as suave Belgian super sleuth Hercule Poirot in this mystery based on the novels by Agatha Christie. Whether he’s on holiday abroad, taking a countryside break or simply going about his business near his central London home, Poirot finds himself exercising his “little grey cells” by helping police investigate crimes and murders, whether they ask for his help or not. Securing a last-minute ticket on the Orient Express from Istanbul to London, Poirot finds himself amongst a host of eclectic fellow passengers. When the train becomes caught in a snowdrift and a passenger is found brutally murdered mid-voyage, the famous Belgian detective is called upon to investigate the crime and find the culprit. Dame Eileen Atkins (Cranford), Hugh Bonneville (Miss Austen Regrets) and David Morrissey (Sense and Sensibility) guest star.
