Monty Python and the Holy Grail returning to theaters for 40th anniversary
Though Monty Python and the Holy Grail celebrated its 40th anniversary earlier this year, Sony Pictures and Park Circus are continuing the festivities all year long, setting the film for a rerelease in theaters.
Sony and Circus announced Tuesday that Holy Grail will be returning to theaters on Oct. 14 in the U.K., where 500 screens will show a sing-a-long version of the film. The screenings are a one-night only event, and will come along with an introduction from John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin specially filmed for the occasion. There are also plans to also bring the film back to theaters internationally and in the United States this fall.
Sony will also be releasing a 40th anniversary edition Blu-Ray of Holy Grail in the fall, so fans who can’t make it to those theatrical showings will have a chance to watch it at home.
The Monty Python cast reunited earlier this year in honor of the anniversary at the Tribeca Film Festival.
