Tarleton State University’s W.K. Gordon Center will step back in time to the summer of 1937 when it presents the classic film Topper starring Cary Grant and Constance Bennett.

The event will take place at 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12, as part of the Night at the Opera House series.

The comedy is directed by Norman Z. McLeod and was a huge hit with audiences in 1937.

The family-friendly movie tells the story of a stuffy, stuck-in-his-ways man haunted by the ghosts of a fun-loving married couple.

Admission and snacks are free, but space is limited.
