Monty Python fans: Read this! Picturehouse Entertainment secured the international distribution rights to broadcast the Monty Python Live (mostly) show July 20, the historic Last Night of the Pythons Live from London’s O2 to cinemas around the world. Sierra Cinemas in Grass Valley will broadcast this historic event Wednesday, followed by three encore showings.
Now fans around the world will have the opportunity to say farewell to the Pythons. Monty Python rightfully holds a place amongst the world’s finest ever comedians, influencing a generation and revolutionizing comedy on their way to greatness. At a combined age of just 357, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin will once again take to the stage and perform some of Monty Python’s greatest hits with modern, topical, Pythonesque twists.
“Thanks to the wonderful invention of moving pictures, The Last Night of Monty Python is coming to a cinema near you. Get your knotted handkerchiefs out and warm your brains one last time at any one of 450 cinemas across the U.K., and 1,500 across the world. Join the crowd live from London’s O2 in a final weepy, hilarious, uproarious, outrageous, farewell to the five remaining Pythons as they head for The Old Jokes Home ....on the big screen, in HD, ” said the Pythons.
