Murder on the Orient Express
Enjoy this movie as never seen before....
Join us as we travel in our own Orient Express while we watch this classic 1974 movie.
Join us as we accompany Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot (Albert Finney) with a star studded cast as he solves his most baffling case. This is arguably the best cinematic version of the ultimate murder mystery
A glass of champagne welcomes you before you board our 1929 Pullman built car 'Macedon' for the screening. Mr. Tom Binns who has worked the Venice Simplon Orient Express and in the movie industry will present a short introductory talk to explain the background and events that led Agatha Christie to pen the novel.
Car attendants will usher you to your comfortable seats in Macedon to watch the movie on a large screen before our train steams out of Castlemaine. Accompanied by the sounds of a steam loco, the level crossing bells, passing lights in the night this is an unforgettable experience!! You are aboard a car similar to the Pullman cars used on the Orient Express in 1929!
During the journey the bar is open and our car attendants offer a drinks and snacks service to your seat.
There is a short interval at Maldon before we return to Castlemaine watching Poirot solve the great mystery.
Departs from platform 3 Castlemaine Station at 7.00pm and returns to Castlemaine at 10.00pm.
Tickets are only $90ea, sorry no concessions or children.
