Cafe Inquiry’s Skeptic SINema Series: Monty Python’s Life of Brian

life of brianJoin us for popcorn and a FREE MOVIE in the Steve Allen Theater! For the next several months, Cafe Inquiry will be your host for major motion pictures with a secular, skeptical, or topical bent, followed by discussion. You’ll be entertained and challenged–and maybe you’ll learn a little something about film history, too!

Ed Rampell, film critic/historian and author of Progressive Hollywood: A People’s Film History of the United States, will introduce the films and lead discussion afterward.

This month’s film will be Monty Python’s Life of Brian.

He was born in Bethlehem, in a stable….

No, not that guy. His neighbor, Brian. Hapless Brian Cohen gets mistaken for a messiah, and that leads to all kinds of trouble in this riotous and controversial comedy. Join us for heresy and popcorn as CFI presents Monty Python’s Life of Brian. Always look on the bright side of life!

Hollywood Progressive/LA Progressive film critic/historian Ed Rampell will introduce the movie and lead a post-screening discussion.
