Liberty Hall presents Monty Python and the Holy Grail Aug. 22

TYLER, August 20, 2014--On Friday, Aug. 22, at 7 p.m, the City of Tyler’s Liberty Hall will show the classic “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

This 1975 British comedy was written and performed by the comedy group Monty Python, which includes Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. It was conceived between the third and fourth seasons of the popular BBC television program “Monty Python’s Flying Circus.”

The film generally parodies the legend of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail. It was a success on its initial release, and served as the inspiration for the 2005 Tony award-winning musical “Spamalot.”

The film was a box-office success, grossing the highest of any British film exhibited in the U.S. in 1975. It has remained popular since then, receiving critical acclaim.

Tickets are available online for $7 at www.LibertyTyler.com or at the door one hour prior to the show. The first guests through the doors will receive “Monty Python coconuts” to bang together during the movie. If you are a true fan of the film you will know why and if not – you will figure it out fairly quickly.
