MONTY PYTONS THE MEANING OF LIFE
Thursday, August 14, 7:30pm
The comedy groups last full length movie returns to the feel of the hugely popular BBC TV show. It features small comedy sketches dealing with all of the stages and trials of life. Expect the un-expected. Plenty of religious, vulgar, and sexual humor may offend some groups. There
are even musical numbers, but with that same unmistakable brand of Python humor. 1983 UK 107 minutes. Rated R - Directed by Terry Jones, Staring John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin
The Eleventh Annual Cinema at the Square Series returns to the Palace Theatre at Playhouse Square with 15 classic films running from July 31 – August 17th.
For the ultimate visual experience, the films are shown on the Palace’s 20 foot-high by 47 foot-wide super Hurly-Glo projection screen – the largest non-Imax screen in Ohio.
Moviegoers will be treated to pre-show organ recitals on a restored 1928 Kimball organ that contains 13 sets of pipes, a xylophone, Glockenspiel, a complete set of drums and many cymbals. The organ, donated to Playhouse Square in 1975, was painstakingly restored by volunteers and is the perfect complement to your evening at this year’s 11th annual Cinema at the Square!
Following the organ performance is a delightful, classic cartoon.
See classic films the way they were meant to be seen! Unlike seeing a movie at the local multiplex, CINEMA AT THE SQUARE transports audiences back through “Six Decades of Film Favorites” in its setting in the lavishly restored Palace Theatre, originally built in 1922 for Vaudeville.
