The Beloved Comedy Fantasy Comes The Capitol’s Screen This August
The Capitol Theater of Greeneville, Tennessee continues their popular Classics At The Capitol Series with their August selection of the beloved 1987 comedy The Princess Bride. This classic romantic adventure will play at The Capitol August 25th at 7:00PM. Tickets will be only $5.00 and can be purchased at the box office or online.
Directed by Rob Riner and based upon William Goldman’s 1973 novel of the same name, The Princess Bride stars: Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, André the Giant, and Christopher Guest. This family favorite was well received by critics upon its original release in 1987 but was not a hit at the box office. Over time it’s grown into his rightful reputation as a beloved classic.
The Princess Bride tells the story of a farmhand who must rescue his true love, along with the help of friends, from an evil prince–and the adventure that happens along the way to complete his quest. The Princess Bride will be introduced by local film writer Andy Ross, he says “This is one of those movies that shows just how much time is the true test of any film, not box office success. This is a classic example of that, even shown as recently as 2016 when the film was added to The National Film Registry. I’m so looking forward to sharing this with everyone at The Capitol this August.”
