Ithaca, N.Y. — Ithaca’s State Theatre will be playing the classic “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” on Sept. 13 at 8 p.m.
Here’s how the State Theatre is plugging the event:
“From its opening multi-language titles to the closing arrest of the entire Dark Ages cast by modern-day bobbies, Monty Python and the Holy Grail helped to define “irreverence” and became an instant cult classic.
This time the Pythonites savage the legend of King Arthur, juxtaposing some excellently selected exterior locations with an unending stream of anachronistic one-liners, non sequiturs, and slapstick set pieces.
The Knights of the Round Table set off in search of the Holy Grail on foot, as their lackeys make clippety-clop sounds with coconut shells.”
We’ve included a few of our favorite clips to get you excited for the event:
General admission ticket prices for Monty Python and The Holy Grail are $6 for adults, $5 for Students and $4 for children.
The film is rated PG. Keep your holy hand grenades at home.
