Free screening: The Princess Bride

If you’re looking for a cheap night out next Tuesday, the Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center has you covered. It’ll be screening the classic film The Princess Bride on August 7th at 7PM.

The Princess Bride is a 1987 American romantic comedy fantasy adventure film directed and co-produced by Rob Reiner, starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, AndrĂ© the Giant, and Christopher Guest. Adapted by William Goldman from his 1973 novel of the same name, it tells the story of a farmhand named Westley, accompanied by befriended companions along the way, who must rescue his true love Princess Buttercup from the odious Prince Humperdinck. The film effectively preserves the novel’s narrative style by presenting the story as a book being read by a grandfather (Peter Falk) to his sick grandson (Fred Savage).

As always, screenings are free, but they’re first-come-first-serve. RSVP here.
