ABOUT THE KENT STAGE:

The Kent Stage offers a variety of domestic and imported beers and other
refreshments. It is the City of Kent’s premiere cultural and historic
venue for live music and theatre events as well as cinema. Constructed
as the Flannigan and Steele Theater in 1927, the Kent Stage is the only
remaining downtown theater of its kind in Portage County. The building
opened as a movie theater and has entertained audiences in Kent for 80
years.

Monty Python’s “Holy Grail”

Directors: Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones
Writers: Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Jones, Michael Palin, Eric
Idle, Terry Gilliam

Release Date: 10 May 1975

Plot:

King Arthur and his knights embark on a low-budget search for the Grail,
encountering many very silly obstacles. The movie starts out with
Arthur, King of the Britons, looking for knights to sit with him at
Camelot. He finds many knights including Sir Galahad the pure, Sir
Lancelot the brave, the quiet Sir Bedevere, and Sir Robin the
Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir Lancelot. They do not travel on horses, but
pretend they do and have their servants bang coconuts to make the sound
of horse's hooves. Through satire of certain events in history (witch
trials, the black plague) they find Camelot, but after literally a quick
song and dance they decide that they do not want to go there. Throughout
their search they meet interesting people and knights along the way.
Most of the characters die; some through a killer rabbit (which they
defeat with the holy hand grenade), others from not answering a question
right from the bridge of Death, or die some other ridiculous way. In the
end, King Arthur and Sir Bedevere are left and find the Castle Arrrghhh
where the Holy Grail is. They are met by some French soldiers who
taunted them earlier in the film, so they were not able to get into the
castle.

Run Time: 91 minutes
