Monty Python and the Holy Grail 

When: Sat., Dec. 17, 7 p.m. 2011
Price: $5.50

Certain older films play so often in revival screenings that at some point, there is nothing new to say about them. It is understandable that these films still have a fan base and that movie theaters wish to make money and build an audience for their more eclectic screenings, but one develops a certain wariness after a while. It's like when A Christmas Story used to screen regularly on local channels, and it was fun, and then Ted Turner bought it out and showed it 24 hours in a row each year, and now there's a slew of merchandise and a touring musical that just played Raleigh Memorial Auditorium. It just doesn't feel special anymore. For the record, here are some of the films we are sick of writing about when they re-screen: The Big Lebowski, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn, The Goonies, Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Serenity, The Princess Bride ... actually, that one screens at this theater on Dec. 21.

If by some strange twist you haven't seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail already, the screening starts at 7 p.m. and costs $5.50. Please don't be surprised if the ending seems abrupt. —Zack Smith
