About this event

Grab your blankets, picnic baskets, and low-back folding chairs, and join us as the City of Santa Ana once again partners with The Frida Cinema to convert Santa Ana's Birch Park into an outdoor venue for live music and cinema! On Friday, August 19th, we're excited to present Rob Reiner's timeless 1987 classic The Princess Bride!

5pm - Gates open to the public. First-come, first-served seating! See venue rules and FAQ below!

6:30pm - Live Music (band TBA)

8pm - Brief introductions, followed by The Princess Bride!

Come early -- the first 50 people who enter the park at 5pm will receive a free small popcorn!

Based on the William Goldman novel of the same name, The Princess Bride is a fairy tale adventure about “fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles” that became an unlikely cult classic beloved by fans of all ages. Led by Goldman’s own witty and ultra-quotable screenplay adaptation, a remarkable cast, and a consistently thrilling narrative, The Princess Bride received the ultimate honor of being selected for preservation by The National Film Preservation Board in 2016.

This event is part of Music & Movies in Birch Park, a weekly presentation of local music paired with classic cinema, provided every Friday night in August at Birch Park! This series being provided free-of-charge to the public by the City of Santa Ana.
