Come join the adventure at the Cerrito on Thursday, June 9, at 9:30PM!

A unique mélange of adventure, romance, fantasy, and comedy,
The Princess Bride has earned a devoted audience since it debuted in 1987.

The Princess Bride is a fairy tale come to life with the brave and handsome suitor (Cary Elwes) who must win his entrancing lady (Robin Wright), against the evil and all-powerful prince (Chris Sarandon). We are immersed in a land of gorgeous vistas and feudal castles, with ruthless villains, all-out combat, hair-raising escapes, and melting romance. Also, many, many laughs along the way, with a cast that includes Wallace Shawn, Mandy Patinkin, André the Giant, Christopher Guest, and Peter Falk. You’ll never forget a scene with Billy Crystal and Carol Kane as unrecognizable crones.

Director Rob Reiner brings it all together, as he did with his earlier tour de force, This is Spinal Tap.

The Princess Bride plays once only on Thursday, June 9, at 9:30PM. All seats are $9.00. Moviegoers are strongly urged to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as the show may sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.
