The Orcas Island Drive-In Cinema presented by the Orcas Island Film Festival will open for two fantastic films on July 16 and 17.
The first feature is the 1987 comedy classic, “The Princess Bride” starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin and Wallace Shawn. The second feature is a brand new film not released yet, “Playing with Sharks: The Valerie Taylor Story.” Valerie Taylor, a pioneering scuba diver who has dedicated her life to exposing the myth surrounding our fear of sharks. Featuring a stranger than fiction script, the making of Jaws, a magnetic heroine, and that most charismatic and terrifying of screen creatures, sharks; this powerful and visually sumptuous 90-minute feature documentary draws on incredible re-mastered film footage captured over 50 years.
Movies start at dusk and admission is $25 per car. For ticketing and information www.orcasfilmfest.com.
