Spam is the flavour of the day as Light House Media Centre prepares for Monty Python Live (Mostly) on Sunday 20th July, with a second screening on the afternoon of Saturday 27th July.
The historic Last Night of the Pythons, live from London’s O2, is being broadcast to cinemas across the world, and Light House in Wolverhampton City centre is getting into the mood by adding Spam to the menu in Lock Works Café Bar, as well as a familiar Python soundtrack for customers to listen to as they enjoy it.
This is one of the most anticipated live events of the year, a chance to say farewell to the Pythons on this last and special night. Audiences can take drinks into the cinema to enjoy the show, which takes place at 7pm, and 2pm on the Saturday encore show. Tickets are £12 and £11 concessions. Reservations can be made by calling the box office on 01902 716 055, or book online on www.light-house.co.uk
At a combined age of just 357, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin opened their short run of dates last week to rave reviews, where they performed some of Monty Python’s greatest sketches and songs with modern, topical, Pythonesque twists.
Monty Python first hit our screens with the Flying Circus, which saw 45 episodes broadcast over four BBC series between 1969 and 1974. The Pythons were an instant success and became the face of British comedy. They went on to achieve overwhelming international acclaim with the huge success of films such as “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” in 1975, “Life of Brian” in 1979 and their final film, “The Meaning of Life” in 1983.
Reviews from the show, which opened last week, include:
“With so many well known gags it's the comedy equivalent of seeing the Beatles play a greatest hits gig.” The Mirror
"comedy history in the making" Daily Express
