The Tobin Center hands over the gate key to British actor Cary Elwes and gives him a platform to reminisce about the most well-known role of his career as Westley (aka the Man in Black) in director Rob Reiner’s classic film The Princess Bride. The evening will start with a screening of the 1987 romantic adventure comedy, which stars Elwes, Mandy Patinkin as Inigo Montoya, Robin Wright as Princess Buttercup, Wallace Shawn as Vizzini and the late Andre the Giant as Fezzik. After the movie, Elwes will participate in a Q&A session and talk to the audience about some of the iconic scenes from the film and share some stories from the set. Want to know what happened when actor Christopher Guest (Count Rugen, the Six-Fingered Man) hit Elwes over the head after the Fire Swamp scene? Want to know how the actors were able to get through their scene with Billy Crystal (Miracle Max) making them laugh so hard? VIP tickets include a meet-and-greet with Elwes and a copy of his new book As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride.
