Despite their being nothing of a holiday mention in this film, I can’t think of a more holiday fun film than , “The Princess Bride”. Making it even more fun will be Westley in person! That’s right, the dashing Cary Elwes will join us for a Q & A and a book signing of the new paperback edition of his bestseller, “As You Wish-Inconceivable Tales From the Making of the Princess Bride.”
Q & A and book signing will take place AFTER the screening! I will however be available before the film if you want to make your purchase ahead of time. You won’t want to miss Cary tell his hilarious behind the stories of Andre & company on the set. Also, at $16 this is a perfect Christmas gift for every film fan in your life. It will fit nicely into the stocking!
Miss this night? INCONCEIVABLE!
