Sherlock Holmes viewing party

A few weeks ago in March, I hosted a Sherlock Holmes viewing party! We were fortunate enough to watch the movies on a large projection screen.

Eleven members were in attendance, with members from both the Parallel Case and the Harpooners of the Sea Unicorn.

The food was all Sherlock Holmes themed with the following:
Diogenes Club Sandwiches (turkey club sandwiches)
Piecroft Holmes (blueberry and lemon mini-tarts)
Iced Moriar-tea (iced sweet tea)
Harpooners of the Sea popcorn (popcorn)
Parallel Crisps of St. Louis (Pringles, because they are parallel crisps)

We put it up to a vote as to which movie we would watch, and we decided to see "The Last Vampyre"

I don't think we liked this one very much. Poor Brett was quite ill and the whole time I know I was thinking about that.

In this mystery, Holmes is hired to find out the real truth behind two mysterious women, a man too deep into the occult, and a crippled young boy.

And also, "Sherlock Holmes Faces Death"

This film is a loose, "modernized" adaptation of the Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual. Overall, we liked this one the best. Basil Rathbone is just too smooth.

Our next movie night will be on Friday, April 18th at the last location.
