The Hitch-Hiker, inspired by the true-life murder spree of Billy Cook, is about two men on a camping trip who are held captive by a homicidal drifter. 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10. 1030 N.

50 Great American Places author talk. Brent D. Glass, director emeritus of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, selected Mission San Xavier as Arizona’s “great American place” in his book which selects a notable American place for every state. You live right next to this thing, so you should take this chance to learn at least as much about it as this guy from the Smithsonian already knows, right? For example, it was built in 1783, and is the oldest European-inspired building in Arizona, as well as the finest example of Mexican baroque architecture in the United States. Proceeds benefit Patronato San Xavier, the nonprofit dedicated to preserving and restoring the mission. 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 10.  Arizona Inn, 2200 E. Elm St. $25, or $20 for members of Friends of Patronado. Details Here.
