Presented by Cluedunnit

Celebrate a new age in cinema in this murder mystery dinner experience like no other.

Join crime writer Jonathon Mapletree and a cast of suspicious characters as you solve the mystery of the 'silent murder'.

In 1927, ‘The Jazz Singer’ sent the cinema-going public into a frenzy! It heralded the end of the silent movie era and the birth of the ‘talkies’.

It is now 1929, and stars from the American and British film industry were encouraged to make the journey down under. Together with existing Australian talent, they set a date to commence filming ‘Showgirl’s Luck’ - the first Australian talkie. The silent movie would be dead forever... and so would some of the stars!

Enjoy a delicious three course dinner as you question the suspects, decipher the clues and work to crack the case… before the credits roll!

You are invited to dress in the style of the period as you work together to solve the mystery.
