Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Monty Python

Monty Python’s Flying Circus was first broadcast 40 years ago this week. To celebrate this and as part of Birmingham Comedy Festival, the Electric Cinema is screening Monty Python’s best known films.

Saturday 3 October 6.30pm
Monty Python and The Holy Grail (cert 15, 89mins)
Made in 1975, the Pythons team’s first proper film pretty much rips up all the conventions of cinema and spits on the tattered pieces.
Killer rabbits, the black beast of Aaaargghh! and Sir Not-Appearing-In-This-Film all feature (or don’t feature) in a completely pointless (or utterly heroic) quest. 

Monday 5 October 2009 6.30pm
Monty Python And The Life Of Brian (cert 15, 93mins)
The film that nearly brought down Christianity! It’s the story of Brian, a witless nobody mistaken for the Messiah who spends the whole film trying to avoid the nutters and zealots who want to bow down and worship him.

Tickets: £6, £4 concessions, £12 sofa. You can find more information on Birmingham Comedy Festival here.
