Monty Python to Reunite for New York 'Holy Grail' Screening

The five surviving members of legendary British comedy troupe Monty Python will reunite in New York this April for a 40th anniversary screening of their Arthurian comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, just added to the lineup of the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.

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.

John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin are on tap to appear at the Beacon Theater for the Holy Grail event, set for April 24, and some members will be on hand for Q&A sessions following the festival’s screenings of other Python films.

The Python news marks the latest in a wave of announcements for the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, which announced its feature slate in two parts and most recently set the lineup for its showcase of multiplatform work. This year’s fest runs April 15-26.
