Private screening of Monty Python’s Life of Brian

As some of you may be aware Saturday 24th September this year marks 31 years, 10 months and 14 days since the UK release of the film Life of Brian.

To celebrate this special occasion the Central London Humanist Group would like to invite you to a private screening of the film at 5.00 p.m. at the Roxy Bar & Cinema on Borough High Street, near London Bridge, a fine establishment selling wines, beers and food that some might say would be ‘good enough for Jehovah’.

Please arrive from 4.00 p.m. for drinks. Snacks of larks' tongues, otters' noses and ocelot spleens, will be available in the intermission.

We encourage you to come along in fancy dress on the theme of Gods, Romans and all things Brian. You can simply don a laurel wreath or a false beard but prizes will be awarded for the best costumes.

Reserving your place

We expect the event to be more popular than a stoning or a crucifixion so please arrive early to avoid disappointment and register your intention to come on either Meetup or Facebook, not both for obvious reasons, so we have an idea of numbers. Very naughty boys, women with beards, men with big noses and the meek are positively encouraged to attend, but please no splitters.

A donation of £3 would be welcome on the night to cover costs.

About the film

Monty Python’s Life of Brian tells the story of Brian Cohen, a Jewish boy born on the same day and next door to Jesus Christ, who is mistaken for the Messiah.

The Guardian, C4, Total Film and Rotten Tomatoes all consider it a contender for the greatest ever comedy film and the BFI regard it the 28th best British film of all time.

For more information on the film and to put you in the mood we suggest you take a look at these video clips:

    Great to see you don't always take yourselves so seriously! Speaking as a newby (I hate that word) you could be more friendly though!

    Great fun - one of the best things CLHG has organised in a while. Everyone seemed to enjoy the film and great effort by those in costume!

    Really well organised, great company, good venue and brilliant atmosphere as always. Only negative point is I didn't like the film! It was funny in places but overall I didn't think it lived up to all my expectations.

    Look forward to the next film :)

    I'm old enough to remember the original screening and have watched so many times since. Could anyone offer a bed for the night as I would like to stay over night for the Sunday Conference

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
