Monty Python's Life of Brian (1979)

  • Lucas Theatre 32 Abercorn Street Savannah, GA, 31401 United States

To celebrate John Cleese and Eric Idle’s appearance at the Johnny Mercer Theatre on October 20th, the Lucas is proud to present two of Monty Python’s best films!

Brian Cohen (Graham Chapman) is an average young Jewish man, but through a series of ridiculous events, he gains a reputation as the Messiah. When he’s not dodging his followers or being scolded by his shrill mother (Terry Jones), the hapless Brian has to contend with the pompous Pontius Pilate (Michael Palin) and acronym-obsessed members of a separatist movement. Rife with Monty Python’s signature absurdity, the tale finds Brian’s life paralleling Biblical lore, albeit with many more laughs.

Rated R. 94 minutes.

Don’t miss Happy Half Hour before each of our movies, where from 7-7:30 you can enjoy half price beer and popcorn specials. If that isn’t enough incentive to get here early, it’s also good to know that our movies start at the time listed with no previews!
