THE PRINCESS BRIDE


The JPT did a poll on which beloved cult-film we should show next and the overwhelming favorite was epic, swashbuckling romance The Princess Bride. When it comes to our cinephile customers, all we can say is "As you wish!"

The Princess Bride is a cult-classic that truly fits the bill, a tepid initial release followed by growing reputation as the powerful spell of its story enchanted multiple generations of viewers. Now considered one of the great love stories on film, it's also an exciting and humorous yarn that's eminently quotable. "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father; Prepare to die!" Haven't seen it before? "Inconceivable!" Seen it 100 times? Not on the big screen with folks who love the film as much as you!

A fairy tale adventure about a beautiful young woman (Robin Wright) and her one true love (Cary Elwes). He must find her after a long separation and save her. They must battle the evils of the mythical kingdom of Florin to be reunited with each other. Based on the William Goldman novel "The Princess Bride" which earned its own loyal audience. The film preserves the novel's metafictional narrative style by presenting the story as a book being read by a grandfather to his sick grandson (Fred Savage).
