On November 14 South Lamar will play host to what is sure to be one of the most memorable nights in Alamo history. In honor of it's 25th anniversay we will be having two very special events dedicated to one of our favorite films, THE PRINCESS BRIDE, both with Chris Sarandon live in person. One will be one of are expertly crafted feasts and the other will be a very special quote-along. Here's a little about each event:
THE PRINCESS BRIDE Feast
It’s no secret that we at the Alamo Drafthouse love, love, love THE PRINCESS BRIDE. It is one of the movies that best sums up everything we adore about movies. We can never see it enough times, and once we heard from Chris Sarandon, who so memorably enacted the part of the black-hearted Prince Humperdinck, we knew that a very special night was in the offing.
In addition to the Prince’s company we will have a multi-course menu, crafted by our executive chef John Bullington. If you know Chef Bullington’s exquisite handiwork from the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy Feast and his other appetizing undertakings, you know that this will be an evening to remember for the rest of your life. Avoid the Pit Of Despair and consider this magical screening an alternative to suicide.
THE PRINCESS BRIDE Quote-Along
"Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."
Is there a more quotable line from ANY movie than that one? Well, that quote or maybe the whole "Mawwage" thing...or I guess the "As you wish" is pretty iconic, too. Oh gosh darn it! Every line in THE PRINCESS BRIDE has transformed from mere lines in a script to gospel that melts even the coldest of hearts.
Inconceivable you say? Well the Action Pack challenges you to a duel of words with our PRINCESS BRIDE Quote-Along! Join Westley as he duels Vizzini and his crew, braves the dangers of the fire swamp, and overcomes death for true love. We'll have all your favorite lines subtitled up on screen karaoke-style for your quoting pleasure, swords for everyone to fight and dramatically switch hands with, as well as a Rescue Princess Buttercup game before the show. So lace up your boots, draw your swords, and prepare for a miracle because this is true love. You think this happens every day? (Greg MacLennan)
And as if this night wasn't enough of a nerdy celebration of all things PRINCESS BRIDE we've upped the ante. Also available for purchase at these events will be our limited edition Bottle of Wits: THE FEZZIK!!
Like its giant namesake, the FEZZIK bottle is huge. Standing nearly 20 inches tall, it holds the equivalent of four bottles of wine and will assume a commanding position among the other bottles in your wine cellar, on your mantlepiece, or on your table. Buy one for yourself or give THE GREATEST GIFT EVER to your friends. Buy it fast though, as there are fewer than 100 of these “wine bottles of unusual size” in existence, and once they’re gone, they are gone for good. Exclusive price of $175 per bottle (normally $225!) for Princess Bride event attendees, while supplies last!
