A theatrical performance of the Monty Python franchise will screen at movie theatres across Canada this summer.
“Monty Python Live (mostly)” will play July 20 from London’s O2 Arena. Encore screenings will run July 23 and 31.
Monty Python holds a place amongst the world’s finest comedians, influencing a generation and revolutionizing comedy on their way to greatness. There was huge demand for tickets for their first live performances at the O2 since performing at the Hollywood Bowl on September 15, 1980 and 40 years after they last appeared on stage in the UK at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
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.
SilverCity St. Vital will host the Winnipeg showing. Tickets are available at Cineplex.com.
