I’m sad to report that this Saturday will bring the last showing of this year’s Second Saturday Drive-In at the Belcourt. I’m really freaking excited to announce that the movie they’re showing is Monty Python and the Holy Grail!
I don’t even know where to start. I adore this movie. I think it’s one of the funniest films ever. Disagree with me if you wish, but you’d be wrong. Straight up wrong. Actually I just asked my roommates what they thought about The Holy Grail and they responded “eh, it was alright, Spamalot was better” so maybe my beliefs aren’t as universal as I thought…
But I digress! I don’t think I really need to write anything about this movie to pique your interest. Apparently you either love this movie or you don’t, but that’s to be expected with British Comedy. Whatever, I’ll post the event description anyway:
The Monty Python comedy clan skewers King Arthur and his knights of the round table as they quest far and wide for the Holy Grail in this inspired piece of lunacy. We’ll spare you the ever quotable quotes for now, as no doubt you’ll hear them scattered about on our final evening outdoors this year.
So there you have it. Be there or don’t be there. If you don’t like hearing people quote movies then you probably don’t want to be there. If you love laughing then go go go go go! This event is this Saturday, September 11th at the Belcourt. It’ll start at sundown. Also, bring a small lawn chair or pillow to sit on. That pavement is not forgiving.
