The Princess Bride
Sunday ONLY!  February 18    4pm
Starring Carey Elwes, Robin Wright & Mandy Patinkin


While home sick in bed, a young boy's grandfather reads him a story called The Princess Bride.


T
he Staff & Volunteers at The Strand are excited to bring this delightful fantasy film back to its 25' screen, presented in 45 speaker surround-sound.  This film was only considered to be a modest hit when it was first released in 1987, but has since grown to be a beloved national phenomenon!

In a 2012 interview in New York Magazine, Mandy Patinkin said that his most famous line from The Princess Bride ("Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.") gets quoted back to him by at least two or three strangers every day of his life. Patinkin told the interviewer that he loves hearing the line and he also loves the general fact that he got to be in the movie, stating, "I'm frankly thrilled about it. I can't believe that I got to be in The Wizard of Oz, you know what I mean?"

Robin Wright
 and Cary Elwes were smitten with each other during filming, naturally helping their chemistry in the movie. Elwes said that he "couldn't concentrate on much of anything after that first encounter with Robin."  In fact, the two were so reluctant to end their time with the film that during their final shared scene (the horseback kiss), one or other of them would keep requesting another take for all sorts of made up reasons. 

During the filming of some scenes, the weather became markedly cold for Robin Wright. André the Giant helped her by placing one of his hands over her head; his hands were so large that one would entirely cover the top of her head, keeping her warm.
