LONDON, April 24 (UPI) -- Monty Python farewell show The Last Night of Monty Python will be shown in movie theaters worldwide.

The Last Night of Monty Python will take place July 20 at the O2 Arena in London. The event is the comedy troupe's first on stage in 34 years, and is also their last performance. The show is being promoted as a "final weepy, hilarious, uproarious, outrageous farewell to the five remaining Pythons."

Picturehouse Entertainment has secured the rights to air the live broadcast internationally. The performance will be shown at more than 450 theaters in the U.K., and 1,500 worldwide.

"Thanks to the wonderful invention of moving pictures, The Last Night of Monty Python is coming to a cinema near you," the Pythons say. "Get your knotted handkerchiefs out and warm your brains one last time."

The show will be directed by Aubrey Powell and produced by Fiz Oliver. John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin are the five members who will appear.
