The Princess Bride at the Lighthouse Cinema
“Life is pain. Anyone who tells you differently is selling something.” Which may be true, unless you are taking in the cinematic classic of “The Princess Bride” tonight at the Light House Cinema. Come to the screening of this timeless classic and close out Valentine’s weekend with a good laugh, a good cry, and enough memorable quotes to get you through the next month. There’s a shortage of perfect movies in this world, so it would be a shame to waste this one.
