Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer's Cut) in HD at Select Cineplex Entertainment Theatres

Canadian fans will experience a Q&A shot live in New York with the Pythons

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 16, 2009) - Cineplex Entertainment (TSX:CGX.UN) and Eagle Rock Entertainment are pleased to announce the one-night only showing of the documentary, Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer's Cut), in High Definition (HD) and digital surround sound on Thursday, October 22nd exclusively at select Cineplex Entertainment theatres across Canada. Available to theatre guests only, the documentary will also include a question and answer session shot live in New York with the Pythons. "This fall, we're delighted to bring the legendary British comedy troupe to the big screen for the first time in an original documentary film," said Pat Marshall, Vice-President, Communications and Investor Relations, Cineplex Entertainment. "We are thrilled to provide our guests with an exclusive Q& A session with the Pythons that they can only see at our theatres across Canada."

"This is the documentary I always hoped that would be made - something so complete and so faithful to the truth that I don't need to watch it," said Terry Jones, Monty Pythons member.

The Monty Python troupe includes (as if you don't know) John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Graham Chapman. The film will feature interviews with surviving Python members, along with archive representation for the late, great Chapman. The Pythons will tell their life story and reveal deeper truths alongside the more tried and tested Python history lessons. The film will also study the Pythons up close and in some cases against their contemporaries: rock stars, comedians, actors, politicians, writers, broadcasters, religious groups and Python-haters. Every opinion on Monty Python will be brought to life on-screen for the first time with never-before-seen material. Dozens of featured guest interviews will include Jimmy Fallon, Lorne Michaels, Hugh Hefner, Eddie Izzard, Olivia Harrison, Steven Merchant, Dan Akroyd, Tim Roth and Seth Green among many others.

Advance tickets are available beginning Friday, September 18th online at as well as at participating theatre box offices. Admission for children ages 3 - 13 is $8.95 + tax, seniors is $9.95 + tax and general admission is $10.95 + tax.

On Tuesday, October 27th Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Monty Python: Almost The Truth (The Lawyer's Cut), a six-part docu-series (available on 3 DVDs or 2 Blu-rays, totaling 7 hours and 43 minutes) from which the theatrical version is drawn from. This series is the only official, authorized program to commemorate Monty Python's 40th Anniversary and will be available in-stores across Canada.
