The Seventh Python's Spinal Tap moment
So is The Seventh Python the new Spinal Tap?
Our pals at Frozen Pictures are following up the June 26th Hollywood premiere of their hilarious and insightful Neil Innes docofilm with a special showing Saturday morning at the Fest for Beatles Fans in Chicago.
The gigantic Beatles fan convention is taking place Friday through Sunday at the Hyatt Regency-O'Hare Hotel (and taking over the hotel). The film will be screened in the hotels' Rosemont Ballroom at 11 a.m. Saturday as an "early bird special" for the thousands of Beatlemaniacs who'll be descending for the memorabilia swap, sell and songfest.
The Spinal Tap connection? Well, just as in the movie This is Spinal Tap, The Seventh Python is sharing billing, in this case, the "early bird special" slot, with a puppet show! On Sunday at 11:15 a.m., early birds are treated to Bob Abdou's Puppet Show!
