Scene in Edmonds: Princess Bride fans enjoy ECA ‘quote-along’
The Edmonds community was treated to a special Saturday noon screening of Rob Reiner’s 1987 classic fantasy/comedy/adventure, “The Princess Bride,” at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, the perfect lead-in to Saturday evening’s tree-lighting festivities.
All customers were issued inflatable swords and instructed to wield them at critical places in the on-screen action. Billed as a “quote-along,” the showing included on-screen subtitles of favorite lines from the film, prompting many in the audience to read along at the top of their lungs.
Since its release when it enjoyed only moderate box office success, “The Princess Bride” has gained a worldwide following, with many characters and dialog snippets becoming an indelible part of our culture.
