‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ Sing-a-Long Version to be Released in Theaters

Sony Pictures and British distributor Park Circus are celebrating the acclaimed comedy’s 40th anniversary

Sony Pictures is celebrating the 40th anniversary of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” by re-releasing the film in U.K. theaters this fall — but this time it will be a sing-a-long version.

The new spin on the 1975 comedy will hit over 500 U.K. theaters for one night only on Oct. 14. Moviegoers are encouraged to come dressed as one of the characters and will be treated to a specially filmed intro from Monty Python members Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, John Cleese and Michael Palin.

British distributor Park Circus will release the film internationally, while Rainbow Releasing will release it domestically.

In the U.S., Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release “Monty Python and the Holy Grail: 40th Anniversary Edition” on Blu-ray.

Set in the middle ages, the film tells the comedic tale of King Arthur and his knights who embark on a small-time quest for the fabled Holy Grail. Their journey is plagued by a number of ridiculous perils, including a Black Knight, a three-headed giant, a house of virgins, a terrifying rabbit and a group of Frenchmen.
