LONDON (AP) - American Monty Python fans who can't attend the troupe's London reunion can always look on the bright side of life. The show will be screened in hundreds of U.S. movie theaters.
The anarchic British comedians are getting back together for 10 shows at London's 02 Arena in July, 34 years after their last stage performance.
Picturehouse Entertainment and Fathom Events say the final performance will be broadcast in more than 600 American cinemas, including branches of the AMC, Cinemark, Regal and Showcase chains. Many will show it live on July 20, with further screenings on July 23 and 24 and Aug. 6. Tickets go on sale Monday.
Python member Eric Idle says fans will get plenty of old favorites, as well as some surprises "that will absolutely freak people out."
