See these films: The Princess Bride + Spaceballs @ the Brattle

It seems like only yesterday that film fans first got a look at both The Princess Bride (1987; Thursday, May 24 at 7:30 pm, Friday, May 25 at 5:30 + 9:30 pm), the now beloved meta-fairy tale directed by Rob Reiner and written by William Goldman; and Mel Brooks's now classic Star Wars parody Spaceballs (1987 | Thursday, May 4 at 5:30 + 9:30 pm, Friday, May 25 at 7:30 pm). Nonetheless they are both celebrating their 25th anniversary as part of the Brattle Theatre's "Reunion Weekend." Which memory is more precious and nostalgic: Billy Crystal as the wizard Miracle Max applying CPR with a bellows, or Brooks playing Yogurt, "the Master of the Schwartz," making a spiel for Spaceballs merchandising? You can enjoy both at 40 Brattle Street, Cambridge | $9.75; $7.75 students; $6.75 seniors | 617.876.6837 or
