"Ring Of Fire" To Show In Shelton
Ring of Fire was partially filmed in Mason County and is about an outlaw (Frank Gorshin) and his girlfriend (Joyce Taylor) who are arrested by a local Sherriff, played by David Janssen. While they are being transported to jail they escape and during their run from the law start a forest fire that threatens a small town. The only way to escape the fire is by train, which leads to the climactic scene of the burning and collapse of a train trestle across the Wynoochee River.
A number of Mason County residents worked as extras during the film while several people including members of the Mason County Sheriff’s Office held small parts in the movie.
The show will take place at the Shelton Cinemas Saturday March 16th at 11:00a.m. and Monday March 18th at 7:00p.m. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased in advance at the Mason County Museum on the corner of 5th and Railroad Avenue in Shelton or at the Shelton Cinemas located at 517 West Franklin. Seating is limited and last time the theater showed this movie about 60 people had to be turned away at the door, so it is recommended you get your ticket early. To reserve a ticket, or if you have any questions, please call the museum at (360) 426-1020.
