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.
