About the event

Prepare for an unforgettable journey with "The Princess Bride," a high-spirited adventure that pits true love against inconceivable odds. This enchanting tale follows the innocent Buttercup (Robin Wright) and her one true love, Westley (Cary Elwes), as they navigate the perils of the mythical kingdom of Florin. From a mysterious pirate to a vengeful Spaniard and a good-natured giant, the characters come alive in a story full of swashbuckling, romance, and outrageously hilarious spoofery. Directed by Rob Reiner and brought to life by an endlessly quotable script from William Goldman, "The Princess Bride" has charmed legions of fans with its irreverent gags, eccentric ensemble, and dazzling swordplay. This fairy-tale classic is a must-see for everyone who believes in the magic of true love and the thrill of adventure!
