[Editor's Note: Tonight the Enzian theatre has a free showing of Monty Python and the Holy Grail on an outdoor screen at the grass amphitheatre right beside the Eden Bar. NumberOneEmber invites ThatGuyRoberto and NumberOneSon to watch the movie with her. Here's her report. --LanceAround]
My first impression of the outdoor theatre set-up was that we wouldn’t be able to find a place to sit. The area in front of giant, fabric screen was overflowing with people on blankets and in chairs. Every adult seemed to have a drink in hand, kids sat at a table together talking excitedly, and several dogs ran around on the grass.
NumberOneSon, ThatGuyRoberto and I squeeze in-between two blankets and lay down, waiting for the sun to set and the movie to start. 30 minutes after the reported start time, an Enzian staff member comes and introduces the movie. After a rough start, the movie finally flips onto the giant screen. I settle into my blanket and watch one of the best comedies I know. I’ve seen the film before so I was murmuring the lines to myself when I knew them. However, it was great to see ThatGuyRoberto’s fresh reactions to the comedy. All in all, it was a rather nice night out.
The day was hot and there were a bunch of drunk people around me, but Monty Python and the Holy Grail was a good movie regardless. It had a lot of old school humour; such as a man fighting with all his limbs cut off and a bunch of rude-French people.
However, even though the movie was good, I didn’t like that I got turned down for trying to buy popcorn and a drink. So, I had to sit through the movie hungry, thirsty, and sitting in the heat. I don’t advise watching this movie in Florida at night, surrounded by a bunch of sweaty people. I’d much rather watch it in the comforts of my own home surrounded by family and loved ones.
