Wearing a mask while inside the Theater is optional.
A kindly grandfather sits down with his grandson and reads him a bedtime story. The story is one that has been passed down from father to son for generations. As the grandfather reads the story, the action comes alive. The story is a classic tale of love and adventure as the beautiful Buttercup is kidnapped and held against her will in order to marry the odious Prince Humperdinck, and Westley (her childhood beau, now returned as the Dread Pirate Roberts) attempts to save her. On the way, he meets an accomplished swordsman and a huge, super-strong giant, both of whom become his companions in his quest to rescue Buttercup.

Did you know?
- Mandy Patinkin has said that the role of Inigo Montoya is his personal favorite over the course of his entire career.
- “Dread Pirate Roberts” existed in real life. Bartholomew Roberts, also known as Black Bart, operated in the Caribbean in the early 18th century. Many consider him the most successful pirate of all time.
- Most of the movie was filmed on location in England. The castle used for the film was Haddon Hall, a fortified country house (not a castle as such) that dates to before 1087 (when it was listed in the Domesday Book). The tapestries in Haddon Hall interiors are original, dating to the late Medieval and Renaissance periods.
- A lot of the dialogue from Billy Crystal’s character (Miracle Max) was ad-libbed and didn’t appear in the script.
