SPAM® SPAM® SPAM® AND....POPCORN!
As fans around the world get ready to enjoy Monty Python Live (mostly) from the O2 in London this Sunday (20 July), as it is broadcast to 570 cinemas in the UK and 2000 worldwide, those attending the screening at Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle Upon Tyne will be treated to a special Pythonesque surprise free SPAM® Popcorn.
As Monty Python says “now for something completely different” and that’s exactly what this iconic meat will bring to the audience on Sunday, when fans can sing along with the famous SPAM™ song, wear their knotted handkerchiefs and enjoy the hilarity of the Python’s unique humour in ‘The Last Night of the Pythons’.
Before the final weepy, hilarious and uproarious performance by the five surviving Pythons live from London, characters such as King Arthur and the Black Knight will hand out specially designed popcorn cartons, filled with tasty SPAM® Popcorn – a mix of crunchy popcorn and 90% shoulder pork and leg ham - to Newcastle cinema goers that they can enjoy during the performance.
Chris Scott, Marketing Manager at Tyneside Cinema on Pilgrim Street in Newcastle, commented:
“We’re delighted to be giving our audiences the chance to see the Pythons’ hotly anticipated reunion broadcast live on the big screen at Tyneside Cinema, more than thirty years after they last appeared on stage together. To help make it an evening our audience won’t forget, and in the spirit of the Pythons’ famous SPAM® SPAM® SPAM® song, everyone who attends will receive a free box of SPAM® Popcorn, in a special limited edition carton – Vikings not included.”
