ONE SHOWING ONLY
Saturday, October 5: 8:30pm
On the 5th of October 1969, “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” first aired on BBC1—going on to run for four series, spawning four original films, numerous lives shows, and several albums.
Join the Riviera for a special showing of the Pythons’ classic Arthurian farce in celebration of their very silly legacy.
History is turned on its comic head when, in 10th century England, King Arthur travels the countryside to find knights who will join him at the Round Table in Camelot. Gathering up the men is a tale in itself but after a bit of a party at Camelot, many decide to leave only to be stopped by God who sends them on a quest: to find the Holy Grail. After a series of individual adventures, the knights are reunited but must face a wizard named Tim, killer rabbits and lessons in the use of holy hand grenades. Their quest comes to an end however when the police intervene – just what you would expect in a Monty Python movie.
