Eric Idle, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones will come together for a special screening of the 1975 movie at The Beacon Theatre on 24 April (15).

The 2015 festival will also feature the international premiere of their U.K. documentary, Monty Python - The Meaning of Live, directed by Roger Graef and James Rogan, which takes fans behind the scenes of their sold out 2014 reunion shows in London, where the troupe performed together for the first time in 30 years.

In addition, festival executives will also stage other one-off screenings of Monty Python's Life of Brian and Monty Python's The Meaning of Life films, with question and answer sessions set to take place after each.

A statement released by Tribeca Film Festival boss Paula Weinstein reads, "It is hard to believe that Holy Grail was first shown 40 years ago. The film is so brilliant and the Pythons' influence on contemporary comedy in cinema and television is so enduring that it feels as fresh today as it did decades ago.

"We are honored to welcome the Pythons to Tribeca and to share stories of their groundbreaking process with our audience through the international premiere of Monty Python - The Meaning of Live."

Palin adds, "The Pythons are looking forward very much to the Tribeca Film Festival and the chance to meet anyone who can remember why we made Monty Python and The Holy Grail. All we know is that it was a documentary about coconuts that rather lost its way. If anyone at Tribeca can explain why we made it and didn't call it Braveheart then our visit to New York will not have been wasted."

The quirky comedy is a reimagining of the King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable legend.

The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival will run from 15 to 26 April (15).
