What better way to celebrate the New Year than experience something completely different? This January rewind to medieval Europe and join King Arthur's quest for The Holy Grail, cautiously observe the Life of Brian, and discover The Meaning of Life all in 35mm only at The Elks Theatre!
SAVE THE ELKS!, a capital campaign for digital projection at the Elks Theatre in Middletown, will host the very silly Monty Python trilogy from January 11th through the 27th. Following the success of the first two films of the Elks' new repertory program, John Carpenter's The Thing and Irving Berlin's White Christmas, the festival will serve as the campaign's next public fundraising event.
Dubbed the '1st... whenever... Python Fest,' this will be the first of a recurring presentation of the classic comedies that will return again annually or perhaps more frequently depending on popularity. The festival commences on Friday, January 11th, 2013, with a midnight screening of Monty Python and The Holy Grail, while Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life will begin their weekend with a midnight screening on January 18th and January 25th, respectively.
Tickets are $8 for each show. For those wanting to see all three films, patrons can purchase a pass for $20. Discounts will be given to the costumed on the midnight screenings of Holy Grail and Life of Brian. Tickets can be purchased at the Elks during normal business hours or online at elksbo.weebly.com
