The Princess Bride (1987) by Rob Reiner. 98 min.
A story within a story, a dream within a dream, Rob Reiner’s 1987 fantasy THE PRINCESS BRIDE is a deliciously self-aware modern classic awash in swashbuckling duels, protracted battles of wits, improbable plot twists, and compulsively quotable dialogue. A deservedly beloved film and a delightfully clever commentary on the perennial power of storytelling to capture the imagination.


The Dark Crystal (1982) by Jim Henson and Frank Oz. 93 min.
On the faraway planet of Thra, the balance has been disrupted. Muppet masters Jim Henson and Frank Oz’s THE DARK CRYSTAL (1982) is an epic fusion of ornate puppetry, analog animatronics and grim fairy tale. In this cult classic, Jen, the determined orphan, must find a magic crystal shard to restore harmony between the gentle Gelflings and the sinister Skeksis.


Spirited Away (2001) by Hayao Miyazaki. 125 min.
A dazzling masterpiece of animation, Hayao Miyazaki’s Academy Award winning SPIRITED AWAY (2001) tells the story of ten-year-old Chihiro, who is separated from her parents at an abandoned amusement park and enters a spirit world. Chihiro confronts witches, gods, and shape-shifters in a dangerous journey full of Japanese mythology, and must use her cunning and courage to find her way back to her family.

This is an outdoor beach screening — bring your towels, beach chairs, and good vibes! The show starts at sundown.
Suggested admission is $10.
