The Princess Bride at Redcliffe Caves

DOORS: 21:15 | FILM STARTS 21:30

It’s March, which can only mean one thing: BFF are back at Redcliffe Caves for a weekend of subterranean screenings!

Bristol Film Festival's Underground Cinema is an unforgettable way to discover, or rediscover, some of the silver screen’s hidden gems, pop culture milestones and genre highlights. Delve deep into one of the most unique locations in Bristol, and forget about the outside world for a couple of hours. Whether you’re settling down for a favourite fantasy film or a cult classic, it’s sure to be one of the year’s most memorable movie viewing experiences.

Due to massive demand for this screening last year, BFF are concluding their 2023 Underground Cinema series with the swashbuckling comedy fantasy The Princess Bride. Settle down to enjoy the adventures of Westley, Buttercup et al - you’ll be pleased to know that the Caves are definitely not home to any Rodents Of Unusual Size…

ABOUT THE FILM 1987 | PG | 98 mins

Buttercup and Westley are two young lovers in the kingdom of Florin. When Westley disappears while seeking his fortune so that they may marry, Buttercup is forcibly betrothed to the wicked Prince Humperdinck. Meanwhile Westley has survived, and assembles a motley bunch of outcasts and outlaws as he seeks to reunite with his one true love.

Contains mild fantasy violence and mild language


Redcliffe Caves are one of the most fascinating locations in Bristol. Originally created to mine sandstone glass in the 17th Century, these caves (technically a quarry!) have a rich and varied history, having been used by hermits, prisoners of war, and even as an air raid shelter. Now, they are accessed through a gate on the Harbourside, and are usually closed to the public.
