Inconceivable! The Princess Bride at AFI

**I recommend that you purchase your tickets before, since there is such a large group - you can buy them online here (http://silver.afi.com/visInternetTicketing/visSelect.aspx?visCinId=1001&visMovieName=THE%20PRINCESS%20BRIDE ) - even if you purchase them online you will still need to meet a cashier to print out your actual ticket.  I recommend you come earlier than the 9:15 time as AFI Silver recommends that you are inside the theater at least 15 minutes before the movie begins.**

 

Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

It's the 25th Anniversary special for The Princess Bride!

Peter Falk reads a story to his sick grandson Fred Savage, who's at first turned off by its mushy-sounding title, but soon riveted by its twists, turns, derring-do and, yes, romance. Robin Wright shines as the beautiful Buttercup, in love with farm boy Westley (Cary Elwes) but eventually betrothed to loathsome Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon). When she's kidnapped by the motley crew of Vizzini the Sicilian (Wallace Shawn), the giant Fezzik (André the Giant) and Spanish swordsman Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin), the excitement begins. Hilarious in supporting roles are Christopher Guest, Billy Crystal, Carol Kane and Peter Cook; the script is by the legendary William Goldman.

Dinner/Drinks are optional before/after the showing.
Closest Metro: Silver Spring

    An Inconceivable time! I laughed I cried[1] I met some new people and some slightly less new people and decided this is the best meetup. I haven't had as much fun in ages.

    [1]: Not really, just seemed to go with the flow....

    Hi everybody! I had a great time on Friday - thanks to all for making it a super fun and friendly event! I wanted to share with all of you that today's Woot! Shirt is a Princess Bride themed one; now we can all be appropriately costumed for the next showing! http://shirt.woot.com/­

    First time seeing the film all the way through and attending AFI. Great fun! I met many new faces and hope to run into you all again at future events.

    I had a great time and glad I met many new members too. I had revertigo during the movie -- beaming at the screen the whole time, it brought me back to my youth. Despite what some of you suggested -- it was indeed worth passing on midget wrestling for this :)

    I won't be able to make it tonite, but already purchased a ticket online. John Duffell will be there and can give someone a free ticket if they would like it.

    Stephanie you said you just bought your ticket on line, where on line did you buy it?

    I just joined the group and am so excited to see my favorite movie in an actual theatre. Yay! Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    Omg major dilemma.. I was invited to photograph (and spectate) MIDGET WRESTLING (Half Pine Brawlers) in manassas on Friday. That was set weeks ago and I just now realized the conflict of schedules... participate in a fun, probably largest GNO meetup I've been to, or shoot midgets? ugh.

    I'm going to be leaving pretty much straight from work, so I should get there with ample time from VA, even with Friday night traffic. Maybe it would be best to have a separate RSVP for dinner/drinks, so a head count can help provide an idea for a location? My friend and I will probably be up for grabbing a bite or a drink since it's not often either of us heads out to Maryland.

    All - I just updated the time for 9:15 - the closest metro is Red line so be sure to give your self ample time to get there.

    Please purchase your tickets early - AFI Silver has a large capacity but this is a super popular and awesome movie. For dinner - what would you all have in mind? I'm afraid the food selection in Silver Spring is... well pretty pedestrian.

    Did all the RSVPs for "Yes" get tickets already? If not, I suggest you get on it now, since I got other meetup emails about this event, too. Don't want to lose out on tickets if (and by "if" I mean "when") they sell out. I got mine and I'm super excited!

    May 15, 2012

  • Carrie

    Yes! Please buy your tickets early - they are now on sale: http://www.afi.com/silver/­

    Should we individually get our tickets in advance? This is going to be awesome!

    I have me ever seen this movie or know of any references to it. No spoilers, please. Also, +1 vote for costumes.

    Looks like we may have a pretty sizable group for this - would anyone be interested in dinner beforehand?

    Prepare to gasp in horror: I don't think I've ever seen this movie in it's entirety. I have no idea what my June timeline looks like, but I'm a strong maybe for now.

    I feel like there should be some sort of costumes involved here...
