Monty Python To Celebrate ‘Holy Grail’ 40th Anniversary At Tribeca
  |  @   |  

In April of last year it was reported that legendary comedy group Monty Python‘s final stage performance, titled The Last Night of Monty Python and described as a “…final, weepy, hilarious, uproarious, outrageous, farewell to the five remaining Python’s as they head to the Old Jokes Home, on the big screen, in HD” would be shown live in theaters around the world.

A documentary titled Monty Python — The Meaning of Life was also filmed during these final shows that offers a glimpse into the preparation that went into the live shows and the history of the comedy group. The documentary will make its international debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival—running from April 15th to April 26th—where Python members John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin will be on hand. While there, the group will also be celebrating the 40th anniversary of their 1975 movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail and their other classics with screenings followed by Q&A sessions.

Of the Holy Grail screening, Palin said in a release:

“The Pythons are looking forward very much to the Tribeca Film Festival and the chance to meet anyone who can remember why we made Monty Python and The Holy Grail. All we know is that it was a documentary about coconuts that rather lost its way. If anyone at Tribeca can explain why we made it and didn’t call it Braveheart then our visit to New York will not have been wasted.”

The Holy Grail screening will be on Friday, April 24th at The Beacon Theatre, followed by a screening of Monty Python’s Life of Brian on April 25th and a screening of Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life on April 26th.

Tickets for the Monty Python and the Holy Grail screening will go on sale on March 23rd, and can be purchased at the Tribeca website.
