UK: Monty Phyton and the Holy Grail

Metro Weekend Event: We are going back in time... 1974's film classic

I am one of the few people who have yet to see this film... I am not sure if I am going to like it but I am going to give it a try. I have seen some previews in the past, but I am not looking through any trailers this time to remind me what I am supposedly been missing. Yes, it is risky, but why not. So anyone who wants to see what fans of Monty Pythons have called a classic or maybe even a masterpiece of comedic work for the first time or for the millionth time, please come and join me as I try to watch this film.

According to the Metro Film website, there is a Citadel Production of Monty Python's Spamalot where performers from this show will be coming down to sing and dance live onstage during the film.  Should make it super interesting!

If there is interest, I am open to having coffee/drinks after the film.

I will be at the theater at 6:30pm just inside the first set of doors. Depending on the weather, I may wear a black hoodie or a black long coat.

      The meetup description indicated that I will be by the front door with my black long coat between 6:30 to 6:45. So I was the only person at the front door inside/outside from 6:25pm to 6:45pm and noone came to me. By 6:45pm, others start to arrive and so we waited inside at the lobby. So i would recommend for next time to either come early/on time at the meetup or have a smart phone to get on time info as to where we are as noted by my comment below. But the latter is only applicable when I have free wifi and only at my events. Other organizers may give you other directions as describe in the meetup description. See you at the next event.

    If you are serious film connoisseur, be forewarn that the plot is disjointed, implausible and underdeveloped. The writing has multiple run-on sentences. If you are an animal lover, be forewarn that there are brutal action scenes involving animals of all sorts.

    If you a thinker, be forewarn to check your brain at the door. The film lacked character development, credible acting, and rational story line. If you are a Monty Python fun, you will have the best time of your life filled with non-stop laughter.

    If you are Edmonton Film Meetup regular, we always have fun before, during and after the film. Thanks everyone for an interesting night filled with amusing moments! Good To See You All, especially for Joseph!

    Coconuts, ferocious rabbits, flying cows, weight lifting swallows, naughty perilous doctors, effusive French, pernicious and shrub loving knights, Marxist doctrine spewing plebeians, ambitious corpse transport technicians, one explosive expert, brides with large tracts of land, multiple choice questions, annoying minstrels, blessed grenades, Doris, and Rico! What more could you want in a film!
