dsc0801-version-2Looking for something fun to do Christmas Day? As you wish — Come to Jewish Museum Milwaukee to enjoy the classic fairy tale The Princess Bride, and film-fare-favorite – popcorn!

Bring your kids and a blanket to introduce them to this deft, intelligent mix of swashbuckling, romance, comedy, and action that takes an age-old damsel-in-distress story and makes it fresh.

The Princess Bride tells the story about a farmhand named Westley, accompanied by befriended companions along the way, who must rescue his true love Princess Buttercup from the odious Prince Humperdinck.

Released 30 years ago, The Princess Bride was directed and co-produced by Rob Reiner and stars Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, André the Giant and Christopher Guest. In 2000, readers of Total Film magazine voted The Princess Bride the 38th greatest comedy film of all time. In 2006, William Goldman’s screenplay was selected by the Writers Guild of America as the 84th best screenplay of all time; it earned the same ranking in the Guild’s 2013 update.

We will begin screening the film at 1:00 pm and should end around 2:40 pm, giving you enough time to view permanent and special exhibits before or after the film.
