Movies on Milton Celebrates 25th Anniversary of “The Princess Bride”

Friday, August 17th, Movies on Milton will feature “The Princess Bride,” in celebration of the beloved movie’s 25th anniversary.

“The Princess Bride” is a much-loved classic that transcends a single genre, as a comedy slash swashbuckling adventure slash romance. The movie follows Wesley, a simple but dashing farmhand, and the beautiful, though oddly-named, Buttercup. Their adventures are framed as a story in a book—The Princess Bride—narrated by a grandfather to his grandson who is sick in bed.

The grandfather’s narration sets the stage for a tale filled with action—sword fights, kidnapping, and intrigue; comedy—witty dialogue, wordplay, and slapstick humor; and romance—but I won’t give away between whom (though you can probably already guess).

“The Princess Bride” stars Cary Elwes and Robin Wright and is PG-13.

The movie will be shown on Milton Avenue (across from Alpharetta City Hall at 2 South Main Street) on a large, inflatable screen. The festivities will begin at 7:30pm., with music, popcorn, BBQ, sweets, beverages, and inflatables. The movie will start at approximately 8:30pm.

The movie is free. There will be free parking at Alpharetta City Hall and the Milton Center (86 School Drive). Bring your own chairs and blankets to sit and enjoy!
