"When I was your age, television was called books".
 
So says a kindly old Grandfather to his grandson before telling him the tale of The Princess Bride.
 
This wonderful story of magic and adventure is escapism in its most pure form.
 
The screenplay is by the legendary William Goldman, writer of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Misery, The Marathon Man and Heat to name but a few.

Here he is at his most carefree and playful. A delightful film for a Summer's evening with fantastic performances and some of the most memorable dialogue in film history:

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die".
Oh!....And one of the best sword fights. EVER.

And

Thank You so much to our simply lovely audience who came to watch it with us at Stoke Newington Town Hall, hope you enjoyed it as much as we did...

we think we may have to screen this one again soon... #asyouwish
