The Capitol Theatre of Downtown Greeneville, Tennessee brings to their Classics at The Capitol series one of the most quoted, most loved comedies of all time this Summer. On June 1st, at 8:00 PM, things will get decidedly silly as The Capitol presents the 1975 classic “Monty Python and The Holy Grail.” Admission will be only $5.00 and can be purchased at the box office or online at www.capitolgreeneville.org.
Created by influential comedy troupe Monty Python, “Monty Python and The Holy Grail” was released to theaters in 1975, and quickly became a massive hit in both the United States and the UK. The story is the legend of King Arthur and his quest for The Holy Grail, alongside his Knights of The Round Table: Sir Bedevere the Wise, Sir Lancelot the Brave, Sir Galahad the Pure, and Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir-Lancelot. In their quest for the sacred relic, the Knights encounter many challenges along their way, including the deadly Black Night, the Evil Rabbit of Caerbannog, plus The Knights Who Say “Ni” and a basic understanding of shrubbery. “Monty Python and The Holy Grail” will be introduced by local film writer Andy Ross, “This has been a favorite film of my mine for years, and one I’ve been hoping to see on The Capitol’s screen for quite some time,” Ross says. “It’s not often this film is shown in theaters, it’s a real treat indeed to see this one on the big screen.” Bring your horse, or friend with coconuts, try to keep your sisters away from Moose bites, and see this classic movie on June 1st! Located at 104 S Main St. in Greeneville, The Capitol Theater is a historic venue that operated as a movie theater from 1934-1992. Today, The Capitol Theater operates as a performing arts center that features not only great movies, but stage plays, concerts, and other events.
