Double Feature!
MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL / JABBERWOCKY
MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL
1975, Rainbow Releasing, 91 min, UK, Dir: Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones

Python's $250,000 epic features Graham Chapman as King Arthur, John Cleese as Sir Lancelot the Brave and Eric Idle as Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir-Lancelot. From the limb-impaired Black Knight, to the immortal Knights Who Say Ni, killer rabbits, the Black Beast of Aarrgghh and the extremely rude Frenchman, HOLY GRAIL is one of the most beloved and quoted cult classics.

JABBERWOCKY
1977, Rainbow Releasing, 105 min, UK, Dir: Terry Gilliam

Michael Palin stars in this fractured fairy tale as Dennis Cooper, a woodworker, who, following the death of his father, must face a series of challenges, which include nothing less than slaying the dreaded eponymous dragon. Gilliam’s outrageous first solo feature incorporates his unique brand of medieval madness, adapted from Lewis Carroll’s nonsense poem.


Screening format: DCP. JABBERWOCKY restored by the BFI National Archive and Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation, with funding provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation.
