Orange County's Year-Round Film Festival

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Sit back and quote along with one of the the funniest, weirdest, and killer-rabbit-est takes on history ever committed to film! A comedic send-up of the grim circumstances of the Middle Ages as told through the story of King Arthur (and framed by a modern-day murder investigation…), Monty Python and the Holy Grail hurls troupe members Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, and John Cleese into a continuously absurd series of obstacles in their God-given quest to find the mythical Grail — including a famously persistent Black Knight, a three-headed giant, a cadre of shrubbery-challenged knights, the perilous Castle Anthrax, a handful of rude Frenchmen, and of course — one particularly carnivorous rabbit.

The Frida Cinema is excited to present Rainbow Releasing’s restoration of the 1975 cult classic, which for its 40th anniversary has been remastered film to – as the Pythons put it – “the highest definition ever!”

“★★★★  An incredibly silly film of great humor, brilliant design and epic insanity.” – Michael Wilmington, The Chicago Tribune
