Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Friday, April 26 - Saturday, April 27, 2013

DCP projection

“The Python troupe’s version of the legend of King Arthur and the search for the holy grail, with no apologies at all to Malory though it manages to send up the legend, courtly love, fidelity, bravery, costume movies, movie violence and ornithology.

“Graham Chapman plays Arthur, the film’s major continuing character, with the earnest optimism of a 19th-century missionary, who’s doomed to fail but refuses to acknowledge the fact. The other members of the Python team turn up in a variety of roles — Round Table knights, snobbish French aristocrats, irritable serfs, mythical monsters and, in one case, as a noble son named Alice who tries to turn the film into an operetta.” – The New York Times
