Luckily for us, they don’t think Tribeca is a silly place.
Variety reported on Wednesday that the legendary British comedy troupe, Monty Python, is set to reunite for a special screening of their famed film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival. The reunion will happen in New York for the 40th anniversary of the film.
Tribeca will also host the international bow of Monty Python — The Meaning of Live, Roger Graef and James Rogan’s documentary about the group’s preparations for its 2014 reunion shows at the O2 in London, as well as screenings of Monty Python titles The Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life.
The screening on April 24 will be proceeded by a Q&A with the cast with John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin all expected to be there.
With the Monty Python reunion, it adds to a line-up at Tribeca that also features a host of digital storytelling innovations and a sports film festival that will include Spike Lee’s latest film.
