Monty Python And Doctor Who Coming To Theaters

Tenth_Doctor_bFathom Events is turning July into a fan service month.

David Tennant will headline a one-ticket/two event extravaganza on July 16-17. The first night he will star as Doctor Who in Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel, seamlessly tied together as a continuous story, and give an interview about his experiences as the Tenth Doctor. On the second night, ticket holders will return to see nature documentary Wings 3D, and hear Tennant’s narration.

Then Monty Python fans will be able to see the group’s reunion at London’s O2 Arena on July 20.

For the first time in over three decades, comedy legends Monty Python will be performing live on stage together at London’s famed O2 Arena. At a combined age of just 361, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin will once again perform some of their greatest hits, with modern, topical, Python-esque twists.

Monty Python Live (Mostly) will broadcast live to theaters across the U.S. and will rebroadcast on July 23-24. Fathom Events is selling tickets here.Monty_python_foot

  1. “Fandom Events is selling tickets [to 'Monty Python Live'] here.”

    So you say. But when I click on it I’m taken to Fandango. Which shows a theatre near me, but when I click on that I’m told there are no showtimes in that zipcode. Nor can I find a price anywhere. Is this just another case where a website is befuddling me, or is something missing here?

  2. After getting your comment I tried out the link again. It goes to a Fathom Events page, then if a customer wants to buy tickets, they get passed on to Fandango, as you say. When I entered my zipcode it showed me the closest available site — which was about 12 miles away (and, of course, it some other zipcode). Based on that experience I would guess there is no showing within the radius it is searching. I didn’t check to see if one could choose the search radius, not that it will help you much if the nearest showing is in the same Burbank theater I was directed to…

  3. I tried again and paid closer attention, and then pretended I was in Burbank. The problem appears to be with the Fandom Events page. It sees your location and shows you a few theatres in your area. The problem is that, although the page says “Monty Python Live” at the top, that’s no indication that any of the theatres it lists are actually showing the movie. You have to click on each individual one and be directed to its own ticketing website (in the case of the one I tried, Fandango) to find out that it’s not showing that movie. Or, if it’s in Burbank, that it is. That really sucks.

  4. (And, I should add, the link you click on says “Buy Tickets”, below that headline with the name of the movie. If that doesn’t imply that the theatre is showing the movie, what would? That really, really sucks.)
