When it comes to memorable movie lines, few can compare to The Princess Bride's "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." It's a phrase that immediately makes us nostalgic. Recite it, and little by little, piece by piece, everything comes flooding back. The fire swamps, the water-powered torture machine, the "mawage" priest at the royal wedding, games of wit, and Andre the Giant playing, well, a giant.

The Princess Bride was a VHS that was rewound almost as many times as we recited the Inigo Montoya line growing up. So what could be more fun than watching it all play out live? Dark Room and Foul Play Productions present The Princess Bride: Live! in honor of the film's 25th anniversary. Wait, the film is 25 years old? Inconceivable! But one thing is for certain, there is plenty of sword fighting, romance, and sweet revenge in this live production of one of the hottest fairy tales ever told. Come, as you wish. The Princess Bride: Live!, starts Thursday, August 2 at 8 p.m. (and continues through Aug. 25) at The Dark Room, 2263 Mission (at 18th St.), S.F. Admission is $20.
