Film Event for a Good Cause
What could be better than watching a great film knowing that you will be helping dogs in need? The Victorian Dog Rescue Resource Group (VicDRG) is staging a special fundraiser showing a new version of an old favourite film, Murder on the Orient Express.
Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in the new version of Murder on the Orient Express
The film, featuring a ride through Europe on the most lavish train, quickly unfolds into the thrilling mystery of thirteen strangers stranded on the train. Everyone is a suspect. One man, Hercule Poirot, played by Kenneth Branagh, must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again. The film is based on the book by Agatha Christie, a timeless author of mysteries and crime fiction.

The film has a star-studded cast, including Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penelope Cruz and Judi Dench.
Included in the cost of a ticket is the movie and a Drink & Nibbles before the film. All money raised will go to help rescue dogs and cats, either through resettling programs or by sponsoring them to stay within the organisation until an owner can be found. There will be a raffle and silent auction as well. Tickets: $30 (plus 30 cent booking fee). Book tickets here.
