Actor Cary Elwes Comes to Akron in October for Special Screening of the Princess Bride

Westley and his princess (Cary Elwes and Robin Wright).
Fans of the 1987 classic the Princess Bride, rejoice! Actor Cary Elwes, who played the dreamy swashbuckling Westley, is planning a trip to Akron for a special screening and discussion of the flick at the Akron Civic Theatre in October.

On Saturday, Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m., folks can partake in a viewing of the film, followed by a Q&A with Elwes, in which he's promised to reveal "never before shared secrets and tales of inconceivable antics," to help promote his book As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride.

Reserved and VIP admission tickets are now on sale ($29.50 - $95 a pop). They can be purchased here.

Do remember, it's been nearly 30 years since the making of the film and Elwes isn't the dewy-eyed lad he once was. For funsies, here's a more recent pic of him with Robin Wright who remains as lovely as ever.
