"The endless marina activity and people watching provides a scene that's conducive to a fun date over a cocktail or meal."

The romance between Westley and Buttercup from The Princess Bride will also be shown on the big screen in this year's Silo Cinema movie.

The 1987 fairytale classic has something for everyone, swordplay, giants, an evil prince and even some kissing.
