This Is What Happened When a Calgary Theatre Lost Their Monty Python Feed

Yesterday was the final show in the ten-gig reunion performances of the original Monty Python crew at the O2 Area in London. To capture make sure as many people as possible got to see it, a feed was pumped to movie theatres all over the world.  However, it didn’t work out well in all locations.  Steve writes from Calgary:

In Calgary we lost our feed with about 15mins to go due to a storm moving through. So what happened?  Well, we all got free passes to another event.  But before that,  the entire crowd in the theatre sang “Always Look on the Bright Side Of Life” to kill time while the feed was out (it actually never came back). I recorded it.
