Rob Reiner | USA | 1987 | 98 MIN
NEW DATE & TIME: May 10 | 8:00 PM | Prince Theater Black Box
Mawage. Mawage is what bwings us togeder tooday. Or rather, it’s what brings us together this month, as we celebrate the real-life fairytale wedding of Lady Markle of Los Angeles and her ginger prince by revisiting this classic story of undying love, mistaken identities, and truly impressive swordplay. Follow along with the kid from The Wonder Years as dashing Westley (Cary Elwes) goes on a quest to win back his true love Buttercup (Robin Wright) from the clutches of a band of petty criminals and the schemes of odious Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon). Along the way, The Princess Bride features many inconceivable twists and turns, a host of memorable supporting characters, and some (but not too many) kissing parts.
Throwback Thursday: Quizzo & Movie – The Princess Bride is proudly sponsored by The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. The first place team – and veritable Dread Pirate Roberts experts — will get a behind-the-scenes look at life on and off the set of the classic film, with 2 tickets to The Princess Bride: An Inconceivable Evening with Cary Elwes on June 15 at the Kimmel Center.
