The W.K. Gordon Center for Industrial History of Texas presents “The Most Dangerous Game” at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, as part of the Night at the Opera House series.

The 1932 movie features Joel McCrea, Leslie Banks, Fay Wray and Robert Armstrong in the film adaptation of the Richard Connell short story that follows a big-game hunter on a remote island.

“Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and if need be, taken by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure,” notes Banks’ character General Zaroff to McRae as Bob Rainsford in the Connell classic.

Admission and intermission snacks are free; however, space is limited and reservations are suggested. To reserve seats, call 254-968-1886 or email

The museum, in historic Thurber, is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. It is located at Exit 367 on Interstate 20 between Fort Worth and Abilene.
