Williamstown Public Library 150th Anniversary Film Series: Princess Bride

Williamstown Public Library 150th Anniversary Film Series: Princess Bride Written by an Oscar-winning screenwriter who never gave up his day job as the author of novels, Princess Bride pits true love against inconceivable odds. And don’t forget the irreverent gags, eccentric ensemble, and dazzling swordplay. A kid (Fred Savage), home sick from school, grudgingly allows his grandfather (Peter Falk) to read him a dusty storybook—which is how we meet the innocent Buttercup (Robin Wright, in her breakout role), about to marry the nefarious Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon), though her heart belongs to Westley (Cary Elwes). The wedding plans are interrupted by a mysterious pirate, a vengeful Spaniard, and a good-natured giant in a tale full of swashbuckling, romance, and outrageously hilarious spoofery.
Free. Accessible seats available; for information, call 413 549 0524.
It is the Clark's pleasure to celebrate the sesquicentennial of the Williamstown Library. On March 9, 1874, the town of Williamstown approved a free public library for its residents. 150 years later, the library continues to enrich the town, making it an interesting, vibrant, active, and involved community. Several months of anniversary celebrations will be held during 2024, including this film series celebrating the transformative power of reading.
