When the several live shows of Monty Python Live [mostly] at the O2 Arena in London sold out incredibly quickly, many were fustrated, though some of us, including this Python fan, were overjoyed when some more dates were announced and were therefore able to get tickets. However, those of you who still wanted to go but missed out might be cheered up a little by the news that  Picturehouse Entertainment have grabbed the rights to screen the show’s July 20 final date. In addition to the 450 screens planned for the UK screening, 1,500 film theatres across the world are being reserved for the event.

The show will feature the five surviving Pythons – John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam – performing a mixture of classic sketches, songs and new material with the usual added element of video screens. The gang, who list their combined age as “just 357”, say:

“Thanks to the wonderful invention of moving pictures, The Last Night of Monty Python is coming to a cinema near you. Join the crowd live from London’s O2 in a final weepy, hilarious, uproarious, outrageous, farewell to the five remaining Pythons as they head for The Old Jokes Home… On the big screen, in HD”.

We will bring you more exact details of the screen when we hear about them. As for me, I’m counting the days, and may bring you a review of the show if I actually take any of it in properly and are not just overwhelmed by the Genius That Is Monty Python.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
