Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears
March 19, 2020
Glamorous lady detective Phryne Fisher (Essie Davis from The Babadook) returns in a cinematic sequel to the wildly popular TV series.
Guests are encouraged to dress in their best Miss Fisher-inspired vintage attire and mingle with costumed characters based on the show, pose in the photo booth, and participate in a costume contest hosted by Rebecca M Davis as Mrs Prudence Elizabeth Stanley. The film will be preceded by Phryne-inspired burlesque from local performer Verity Germaine and intro from the Miss Fisher Philes podcast. Doors open at 6:00 PM.
Special thanks to Acorn TV, Viva! Grey Photography, Archive Six, Jo Jo Stiletto, and the cast of Miss Fishnet's burlesque.
In 1929 Jerusalem, Phryne's rescue of a young Bedouin girl leads her on a globe-trotting adventure to uncover priceless treasures, wartime secrets, and an ancient tomb bearing a terrible curse, with the help of handsome detective Jack Robinson (Nathan Page).
