Get dressed up in the sizzling 1920s theme and see Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears at the Palace Cinema on Wednesday. In her debut cinematic adventure, join detective extraordinaire, the Hon. Miss Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis), as she embarks on a globe-trotting romp of mystery and mayhem across the exotic 1920s Negev desert, through glamorous manor-house ballrooms, and down the dark back alleys of London. After freeing a young Bedouin girl, Shirin Abbas, from her unjust imprisonment in Jerusalem, Miss Fisher begins to unravel a wartime mystery concerning a priceless jewel, an ancient curse and the truth behind the suspicious disappearance of Shirin’s forgotten tribe.
