Celebrating its 48th-and-a-bit anniversary, Monty Python And The Holy Grail is coming back to cinemas for a limited time only.
Forget your usual sing-along screenings of your favourite musical. You can go to a quote-along screening of Monty Python And The Holy Grail this February.
It’s been 48 (and a half) years since the iconic comedy premiered in cinemas. Starring Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin, Monthly Python And The Holy Grail marked the directorial debuts of Gilliam and Jones.
To mark the anniversary, the film is making a comeback in cinemas, but there will also be special quote-along screenings. They will give you an opportunity to shout out lines like “She’s a witch!” and “I fart in your general direction” at the screen.
Tickets for these are already on sale and you can purchase them here.
Monty Python’s Life Of Brian also had a re-release just last year.
Most of you already know what or who Monty Python is, but here’s a reminder: it was the name of Chapman, Cleese, Gilliam, Idle, Jones and Palin’s comedy troupe. Together, they made the series Monty Python’s Flying Circus, released numerous albums, and a total of five films. They’re considered one of the most influential and successful British comedy groups of all time.
Sing-along and quote-along screenings have proved to be popular in recent years. Tommy Wiseau still travels around the world attending screenings of The Room, including several at London’s Prince Charles Cinema, where patrons would often come armed with plastic spoons to throw at the screen (it’s a tradition).
You can catch Monty Python And The Holy Grail in cinemas from 21st February.
