The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to join theaters around the world for a global theatrical event: “Monty Python and the Holy Grail 48½ Anniversary” Dec. 3 and 6 at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre.

“Monty Python and the Holy Grail” is a 1975 British comedy film written and performed by Monty Python (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin) and directed by Gilliam and Jones in their feature directorial debuts.  The film parodies the legend of King Arthur’s quest for the Holy Grail.

King Arthur (played by Graham Chapman) and his Knights of the Round Table embark on a surreal, low-budget search for the Holy Grail, encountering many, very silly obstacles along the way — from the Black Knight and the Knights of Say “Ni!” to French Taunters and a Killer Rabbit.

Join Monty Python, Iconic Events Releasing and a host of Monty Python fans (new and old, and not-so-old) to celebrate the 48½ anniversary of this comedy classic, back in theaters across the US for two nights only.

With an all-new quote-along, created exclusively for this anniversary release, audiences will enjoy an interactive and uproarious cinematic experience in a way that only Monty Python can delivery.

Get ready to go on a Medieval quest with coconut-clacking horses and unforgettable one-liners, that will have you shouting “Bring out your dead”, singing along as a Knight of the Round Table — and loving every (91 minutes) of it.
