The centuries-old hunt for the elusive Holy Grail has ended! (It’s in Toronto). On Tuesday July 17, 2012, Yonge-Dundas Square presents a screening of Monty Python and the Holy Grail as part of their weekly Cult Classics series.
The 1975 comedy stars the whole Python crew (Michael Palin, John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Terry Jones and Eric Idle) playing multiple characters. Chapman is King Arthur, who roams the countryside acquiring increasingly silly team-members, the Knights of the Round Table, to help find the Holy Grail. The film is co-directed by and features animation from Terry Gilliam. His film Brazil screens at Yonge-Dundas Square on August 21, 2012.
The film will begin around sunset, or approximately 9:00 pm, on Tuesday July 17, 2012. Seating is provided, but feel free to bring your own chairs since space may be limited. The Cult Classics series takes place every Tuesday, outside at Yonge-Dundas Square (corner of Yonge and Dundas), until August 28, 2012. For more information, visit the Cult Classics information page. And, oh yeah, it’s free.
