About this Event

Thursday, September 27th

8pm | $10

Director: Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones

The first feature-length film from Monty Python, the quintet of physically and verbally gymnastic British sketch comics, is not only widely considered their funniest, but one of the funniest films ever committed to celluloid.

Based (or spring boarded) on the Arthurian legend of the quest for the Holy Grail, Monty Python and the Holy Grail is screamingly hilarious from its opening credits to its final scene. Coconuts, killer rabbits, flying cows and holy hand grenades fill the landscape as the Python troupe immerse themselves in multiple roles, skewering legend and establishment with their surreal brand of humor.

It's hard to overstate the importance and influence of this film. Never has a movie been so brilliant, so twisted, so far afield of anything remotely resembling convention AND so low budget, all at the same time.

This film forever changed our expectations of what is and what would be funny.

The comedy comes from all angles - word-play, visual gags, surrealism, postmodernism, blink-or-you'll-miss-it background gags, and simply pulling silly faces - and they come thick and fast, and include more laughs per minute that most comedies will be lucky to muster in 90 minutes.

This is simply a brilliant film, and will forever remain among the greatest comedies ever created and should absolutely not be missed in its original 35mm format.
