'Monty Python' anniversary celebration planned for Tribeca

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) A 40th anniversary celebration for "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" is coming in the general direction of the Tribeca Film Festival.

The New York festival announced Wednesday that the film's anniversary will be marked with a special screening of the film, attended by the comedy group's five living members. They will attend the April 24 screening at the Beacon Theatre.

One Python, Michael Palin, says the group is hoping to meet anyone who can remember why they made the movie. He calls it "a documentary about coconuts that rather lost its way."

Another Python, Terry Gilliam, says a "lack of money" saved the film from mediocrity. Says Gilliam: "We couldn't afford real horses."

A documentary about the Pythons' 2014 reunion shows in London will also premiere at Tribeca.
