WED FEB 19 *Double Feature* Tribute to Terry Jones (1942-2020) & Neil Innes (1944-2019) | MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL 7:00 England’s zaniest humorists take on the Middle Ages and convert Arthurian legend into uncontrollable lunacy! Written and performed by all your favorite Pythons (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam), Holy Grail isn't your average medieval knights and horses story—for a start, due to a shortage in the kingdom, all the horses have been replaced by servants clopping coconuts together! (1975, 92 min, 35mm) + LIFE OF BRIAN 8:45 Python’s gleefully irreverent tale tells the story of a hapless soul (Brian, played by Graham Chapman) who leads a parallel life to Christ and is mistaken for the Messiah, leading to trouble with the Romans and idiotic followers at every turn. Drawling accusations of blasphemy and protests in its day, the film’s ads proclaimed, “So funny, it was banned in Norway!” (1979, 93 min, DCP)
