The Great Detective at QAGOMA Cinémathèque

Launching in July ‘The Great Detective’ brings together an intriguing range of detective films from the silent era to present day. Featuring literary favourites such as Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, the program also includes a wide selection of whodunits, clever courtroom reveals, Hitchcockian suspense-thrillers and gritty procedural drama.

The program’s opening weekend features a screening of the silent mystery classic Sherlock Holmes 1916 with live musical accompaniment. Thought lost for more than half a century, it was recently rediscovered and restored. And, don’t miss a classic private eye pairing when Robert Mitchum’s Philip Marlowe appears in Farewell, My Lovely 1975 before Humphrey Bogart as Sam Spade sets out on the case of The Maltese Falcon 1941.
