Monty Python’s Life of Brian – 40th Anniversary Screening

It’s been 40 years since the release of the hilarious, Monty Python’s Life of Brian, the story about a¬†relatively unexceptional, occasionally very naughty non-Messiah boy named Brian (Graham Chapman), who is born a few doors down from the Messiah himself.

Brian Cohen (Graham Chapman) is an average young Jewish man, but through a series of ridiculous events, he gains a reputation as the Messiah. When he’s not dodging his followers or being scolded by his shrill mother (Terry Jones), the hapless Brian has to contend with the pompous Pontius Pilate (Michael Palin) and acronym-obsessed members of a separatist movement. Rife with Monty Python’s signature absurdity, the tale finds Brian’s life paralleling Biblical lore, albeit with many more laughs.

Join us in this outrageous celebration of one of the most iconic films from the Monty Python team.
