A Mystery by Agatha Christie

Show Times: Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.

THE STORY: In this great mystery-comedy statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon, England fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten “soldiers” met his death until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants are marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead-poisoned. One down and nine to go! The excitement never lets up.

ASHEVLLE — The drive-in picture show long ago faded from the scene in Asheville. But Wedge Brewing Co. in the River Arts District is keeping the spirit alive with its free weekly outdoor film screenings beginning May 7.

Wedge will screen classic movies Saturday nights, through Sept. 28, starting at “15 minutes after sunset” in the Wedge parking lot, 125B Roberts St., facing the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks.

The movie “screen” is actually the side of a delivery truck in the lot. Moviegoers should bring a chair or something to sit on. Beers are available from the Wedge tasting room. Learn more at
