A 1987 American fantasy adventure comedy film directed and co-produced by Rob Reiner, starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, André the Giant, and Christopher Guest.
Adapted by William Goldman from his 1973 novel The Princess Bride, it tells the story of a farmhand named Westley, accompanied by companions befriended along the way, who must rescue his true love Princess Buttercup from the odious Prince Humperdinck.
The film essentially preserves the novel’s narrative style by presenting the story as a book being read by a grandfather (Peter Falk) to his sick grandson (Fred Savage).

Frozen will “Let It Go”
Frozen, one of the favorite family movies of all time, with songs that keep popping into your head, will be the BIFF2018 Sing-A- Long feature film. The Walt Disney animated classic will be screened Sat., Feb. 24, at 7:30 p.m. at Schubert’s Luxury 10 Cinema on Cranston Road in Beloit.
The BIFF Sing-A- Long, this year sponsored by the Janesville law firm of Brennan Steil SC, and U.S. Cellular and a generous anonymous friend, has become one of the most popular BIFF events, with films like Sound of Music, Grease and Hard Day’s Night. Getting dressed up is an option enjoyed by many in the audience.
This year’s modern classic, rated PG, is the perfect sing along film for the whole family this frigid season. Frozen tells the story of the optimistic Queen Elsa who accidentally uses her power to turn things into ice, cursing her home to infinite winter. Her sister Anna teams up with a mountain man, his playful reindeer and a snowman to change the weather conditions.
And to add to the fun, the festive evening offers an opportunity for queens and princesses and mountain men to dress up and compete for prizes. Even reindeer will be allowed to compete. Popcorn and soda will be provided, compliments of Luxury 10.
“Let it Go”, “I want to build a snowman” and more!
Winner of two Academy Awards among its long list of awards, the 2013 film was directed by Chris Buck and by Jennifer Lee who also wrote the screenplay. The cast of voice actors includes Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell. And have no fear, if you have forgotten some of the words to “Let it Go” or “I want to Build a Snowman.” The words will be displayed at the bottom of the movie screen.
Tickets for the BIFF Sing-A- Long are $10 plus a purchase fee, and will go on sale online later in the month.
