"Monty Python and The Holy Grail" is the latest cult classic deemed trashy enough for late-night screenings at the Crest Theatre, 1013 K St., in Sacramento.
The Trash Film Orgy, a summertime series for lovers of campy retro movies, is responsible for the midnight show tonight or the 3 p.m. Sunday matinee. Billing itself as "adult fun," the Trash Film Orgy is limited to theater-goers ages 18 and older.
All seats cost $10, but if you come in an "awesome" costume, you can save a buck at the box office. Tickets are available at the theater, and online at www.tickets.com with a booking surcharge.
The 1975 film in question is Monty Python's irreverent take on Arthurian legend. Now legends themselves, the British comedy troupe pokes fun at everything from their flimsy cardboard sets to the absurdity of certain institutions. For a screwball comedy set in the Dark Ages, it tries hard to say something enlightened - without sacrificing any silliness.
