Outdoor Film at the Modern: THE PRINCESS BRIDE


Friday, July 1; 7:30 pm
Bring a blanket, dust off your tiara, and enjoy an outdoor screening by the Modern's reflecting pond.
A delightfully postmodern fairy tale, The Princess Bride (1987) is a deft, intelligent mix of swashbuckling, romance, and comedy that takes an age-old damsel-in-distress story and makes it fresh. Robin Wright, Cary Elwes, and Mandy Patinkin star in this adventure about a beautiful princess and the gallant hero who rescues her from an evil villain. Directed by Rob Reiner with a screenplay by William Goldman, it's an enchanting and enduring classic.
