‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ Returning to Theaters for ’48 1/2′ Anniversary

If you have been having a hankering to see some Monty Python pretty soon, then you are in for a really big treat. Our friends over in Great Britain are allowing the world to see Monty Python and the Holy Grail again.

This will be a limited showing around the United States. You have two dates to see this very funny film. Go check it out on December 3 or December 6. If you have not seen any of the old-school Monty Python’s Flying Circus, then you’ll get a chance to see some British humor here.

Back in the 1970s, Monty Python became a show that had a groundswell of followers in America. John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and Eric Idle became quite popular here.

Monty Python Movie Brings Fans Along For The Ride

So, what is Monty Python and the Holy Grail about? The movie’s website offers this information.

“Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a 1975 British comedy film written and performed by Monty Python (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin) and directed by Gilliam and Jones in their feature directorial debuts. The film parodies the legend of King Arthur’s quest for the Holy Grail.

“King Arthur (played by Graham Chapman) and his Knights of the Round Table embark on a surreal, low-budget search for the Holy Grail, encountering many, very silly obstacles along the way – from the Black Knight and the Knights of Say ‘Ni!’ to French Taunters and a Killer Rabbit.

“Join Monty Python, Iconic Events Releasing, and a host of Monty Python fans (new & old, and not-so-old) to celebrate the 48 1/2 anniversary of this comedy classic, back in theaters across the US for two nights only. With an all-new quote-along, created exclusively for this anniversary release, audiences will enjoy an interactive and uproarious cinematic experience in a way that only Monty Python can deliver. Get ready to go on a Medieval quest with coconut-clacking horses and unforgettable one-liners, that will have you shouting ‘Bring out your dead’, singing along as a Knight of the Round Table – and loving every 92 minutes of it.”

Fans Can Interact With the Movie

One of the great things about this movie is there are lines that fans still remember to this very day. For instance, “Bring out your dead.” The killer rabbit inclusion. And, of course, the dialogue between all of the Python crew.

Visit holygrailincinemas.com and see which theater will be showing the movie. Again, it’ll be shown only for two nights, December 3 and December 6. Get ready to laugh your butt off all over again…or maybe for the first time.
