Calling All Movie Buffs - Opelika is Film Begins This Week

How much of a movie buff are you? Can you figure out the answers to this infographic? 

The answers are... 

The Dread Pirate Roberts/Westley from The Princess Bride, Mary Poppins from Mary Poppins, and Mr. Fox from The Fantastic Mr. Fox. 

Do you know what they all have in common? 

They’re characters from the movies that Opelika is Film is putting on this summer!

Beginning this Thursday, June 26, Opelika is Film, sponsored by Cottonseed Studios and Opelika Main Street, is putting on three summer films on the Train Depot Lawn in downtown Opelika after sundown. Admission is $1 for adults and free for children under sixteen, so whether you’re looking for a date night idea or something for the whole family to enjoy, Opelika Film Night is for you! 

The first movie is The Princess Bride on Thursday, June 26, 2014. The movie starts at sunset, but there will be plenty of activities, including Frisbee, beginning at 6 p.m. Pack up your lawn chair or a blanket, grab dinner from your favorite downtown restaurant, and settle in to watch the Dread Pirate Roberts battle everything from giants, an angry Sicilian and Rodents of Unusual Size in order to win the hand of his fair Princess Buttercup. 

 The second movie will be Mary Poppins on Thursday, July 17, and the third movie will be The Fantastic Mr. Fox on August 13.
