Directed by Rob Reiner (USA, 1987, 98 min.). Digital.

Join us this Valentine’s Day for an epic tale of fencing, fighting, miracles, monsters, giant rats, true love, and mawwaige.

When the beautiful maiden Buttercup (Robin Wright) hears that her true love Westley (Cary Elwes) is dead, she reluctantly agrees to marry the loathsome Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon). After Westley returns to rescue Buttercup, the two begin an epic adventure. Featuring an all-star cast, including Mandy Patinkin, Billy Crystal, and Christopher Guest, The Princess Bride is an almost inconceivable delight.

Taste café, located right outside the theater, will offer special concessions—including Tru-Wuv Truffles, Princess Buttercups and Fire Swamp Cocktails—for you to enjoy during the film.

Looking to grab a fancy cocktail before the screening? Swing by Bravo restaurant in the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art for a special Valentine’s Day menu.

Additional activities at the Museum taking place during the evening include Drawing in the Galleries, Spotlight Talks on “Friends and Lovers” featured in the exhibition  (un)expected families and an artist demonstration on tessellations by Michael Wilson, inspired by the exhibition “M. C. Escher: Infinite Dimensions.”
