Free Outdoor Screening of The Princess Bride

February 15 at 8:00 pm - 9:50 pm

This screening will take place on the University of Arizona Mall, presented by Cats After Dark.

Co-presented by Cats After Dark and UA Women and Gender Resource Center.

Could there actually be a better post-Valentine’s Day film than The Princess Bride? Inconceivable!!! See this beloved romantic comedy screened under the stars on The Loft Cinema’s giant inflatable solar cinema screen! This is a great event for UA students, and is also open to the general public. Please bring your own seating.

Scaling the Cliffs of Insanity, battling Rodents of Unusual Size, facing torture in the Pit of Despair. This is not just your basic, average, every day, ordinary, run-of-the-mill fairy tale! Few, if any, films of the ‘80s have been more beloved by successive generations of moviegoers than director Rob Reiner’s hilariously enchanting comedy/fantasy/romance of a perpetually kidnapped and rescued princess, penned by legendary screenwriter William Goldman, based on his own novel. And what a story: a lowly stable boy, Westley (Cary Elwes), pledges his love to the beautiful Buttercup (Robin Wright), only to be abducted and reportedly killed by pirates while Buttercup is betrothed to the evil Prince Humperdinck. Even as Buttercup herself is kidnapped by a giant, a scheming criminal mastermind, and a master Spanish swordsman, a mysterious masked pirate (could it be Westley?) follows in hot pursuit. Will true love conquer all? Featuring an all-star comedy cast, including Christopher Guest, Billy Crystal, Andre the Giant, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Peter Cook, Wallace Shawn, Carol Kane, Fred Savage and Peter Falk.
