When tickets went on sale for legendary comedy troupe Monty Python’s upcoming dates at the O2 Arena in London, they sold out in mere seconds. Those lucky few ticket buyers perhaps didn’t know it at the time, but this set of shows might be the last time that Monty Python performs together. But if you didn’t get tickets, Picturehouse Entertainment has just acquired the rights to broadcast The Last Night of Monty Python live to theaters across the entire world.
450 theaters with about 1500 screens will show the event on July 20th. There’s no word about a subsequent home video release, but since they’ll be filming the show, that’s a possibility. In either event, with the live screening, you’ll have a chance to see what might possibly be the last performance of Monty Python.
