"The Princess Bride" Poolside



    VERY CONCEIVABLE: You, poolside, at a posh Hollywood hotel, watching one of the greatest romances ever put to film? Not inconceivable at all, thanks to the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel & Spa's summertime "Dive-In Movie" events. "The Princess Bride" is the Saturday, Aug. 14 flick, but there are several still ahead, including "Little Miss Sunshine." There's something very sybaritic about lounging on a deck, in a damp swimsuit, steps from the theater where bejeweled stars showed up in support of that movie.

    TINSELTOWN SCREENING: All the spots to see a movie around the heart of Hollywood are very famous, of course, but we don't often think of the pool at the Renaissance. Check out the hotel's packages.
