Always look on the bright side of life this Easter Sunday -- with "Life of Brian" screening at Flicks in the Sticks

Eumundi's outdoor cinema, "Flicks in the Sticks" has announced its next screening --"Monty Python's Life of Brian" -- on Sunday 4 April at the Eumundi Showgrounds.

"Easily one of the funniest movies of all time, Life of Brian is sure to appeal to lots of people", says Flicks Director Trent Harvison. "Everyone has their favourite lines and songs and this could be the most quoted movie of all time"

"Easter holiday makers will be able to experience one of the Sunshine Coast's newest attractions. Since starting in December 2009 Flicks in the Sticks has gained a loyal following who come along to each movie and dress in costume and sing along to the songs", says Trent. "We all have a great time under the stars, and it's a real family friendly environment".

The Eumundi Showgrounds gates will open to moviegoers from 5pm, with the screening starting around 6.30pmish. BYO rug, chair or blanket, with beanbags available for hire.

"The cost is only $8 per person, and it's free for children under 3 years of age," says Trent. "The price also includes a glow light and a movie treat -- your choice of a choc-top ice cream, or drink or chocolate. It's the best value night out on the Coast!"

A bit about the movie...

The Plot

Often described as one of the funniest films of all time, Life of Brian is a hoot from start to finish. Brian Cohen is born in a stable just a few doors down from Jesus. Wise men arrive and begin to distribute gifts -- the star moves further so they take it all back and move on. Brian's life continues in a similar fashion.

Brian grows up to be an idealistic young man who resents the continuing Roman occupation of Judea, even after learning his father was a Roman Centurion - Naughtius Maximus. While attending Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, he becomes attracted to a young female rebel, Judith. His desire for Judith and hatred for the Romans lead him to join the People's Front of Judea, one of many factious and bickering separatist movements, who spend more time fighting each other than the Romans. The Jews are looking for a release from the Romans, keep looking for signs and a group decides Brian is the Messiah. He cannot convince them he is not -- with his mother (Mandy) famously declaring "He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy!" Through a series of hilarious rollercoaster events, Brian ends up on the cross. Condemned to a long and painful death, Brian finds his spirits lifted by his fellow sufferers, and the movie ends when they all break into song with "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life".
