Cary Elwes in Person on Friday Night! (schedule permitting)

Friday, October 17 – Sunday, October 19

(1987) dir Rob Reiner w/Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Christopher Guest, Wallace Shawn, Andre the Giant [98 min; DCP]
In William Goldman’s timeless tale, the young farmboy Westley (Elwes) and his mistress Buttercup (Wright) fall deeply in love but are cruelly torn asunder when Westley is believed lost at sea. Heartbroken, Buttercup agrees to marry the nefarious Prince Humperdinck who plans on using her in a plot that will end in her demise. Surprisingly, to her rescue comes the infamous Dread Pirate Roberts – or could it be someone more familiar? This wonderful film is a magic trick in and of itself: a heartfelt homage to fairy tales and a hilarious skewering of them at the same time.

Don’t miss Cary Elwes reading from and signing his new book, As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of the Princess Bride, on Friday, October 17 at 6pm, presented by Porter Square Books. Stick around afterwards as Elwes introduces THE PRINCESS BRIDE (schedule permitting). Tickets at *SOLD OUT*
