The July 9th showing of The Princess Bride marks the midpoint of the Hopkins Summer Outdoor Films series. Directed by Rob Reiner, this unexpected cult classic chronicles the comic antics of Westley and his beloved Buttercup. The movie will begin after sunset, preceded by a performance by The Blue Lemon Trio at 7:30 pm on Keyser Quad in front of Gilman Hall on the Homewood Campus (rain location: Shriver Hall Auditorium).
