Monty Python & the Holy Grail at UPAC

The Bardavon concludes its ninth season of‑ classic films on the big screen at the Ulster Performing Arts Center (UPAC) with a sing-along screening of the comedy classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail on Friday, April 21 at 7:30 p.m. All seats cost $6.

To celebrate the 42nd anniversary of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a brand-new sing-along version of the film will be shown. Audiences are encouraged to come dressed up as their favorite Holy Grail character.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a surreal 1975 British comedy film concerning the Arthurian legend, written and performed by the comedy group of Monty Python (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin) and directed by Gilliam and Jones. It parodies the legend of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail. Idle used the film as the basis for the musical Spamalot 30 years later.
