Markets & Morality Presents: Monty Python and The Holy Grail, Online Film Event

Monday, March 15 at 7:00pm

Virtual Event

“Whoa there!”

The members of Markets & Morality with the support of the Department of History, Department of Political Science, and Geek Life organization are proud to present a most unusual but sure-to-be hysterical screening of the 1975 British comedy classic Monty Python and The Holy Grail on Monday, March 15 at 7 p.m..

Set in the 10th Century and featuring Arthur, King of the Britons (“Who are the Britons?” “Well, we all are. We are all Britons. And I am your king.” “I didn't know we had a king. I thought we were an autonomous collective.”) and his brave knights (especially Sir Robin who is not afraid to be mashed into a pulp), the story takes a most circuitous route as the characters (all, but Sir Not Appearing in This Film) attempt to locate the Holy Grail.

If you’ve seen this quotable cult classic, you know something about what you’re in for. But if you haven’t, rest assured it will be almost constantly ridiculous, periodically smart, and peppered with social commentary. But, bonus(!), this particulars of this unique online film event, including remarks by Dr. Janis Gibbs, a Hope historian with expertise in the Middle Ages, will facilitate even more intelligent insights and perhaps some additional hilarity specially designed for Hope College!

Embrace the pandemic, finding solidarity with our medieval counterparts and your Hope friends, and join us for this unusual film screening, a worthy jumpstart to Hope’s Break Day on March 16.

The public is invited and admission is free. Advance registration is required, although gifts of shrubbery will substitute in a pinch.

Please contact marketsandmorality@hope.edu (email is preferred to notes carried via swallow, African or European) with any questions or register online today!

“Alright, sonny, that’s enough.”
