Fans of the Fab Four, you have a treat in store this September when a new documentary about The Beatles is released. The film, only available in cinemas, will screen at Cinema Paradiso from September 16 for a limited time only.
The Beatles played Shea Stadium on August 15th 1965 in what was to be the first rock concert ever staged in a stadium in front of more than 55,000 people. The event was filmed using fourteen 35mm cameras by Ed Sullivan Productions and Brian Epstein and for the very first time, the fully restored, remastered, 30-minute performance will screen as part of the worldwide theatrical release of Academy Award-winner Ron Howard’s authorised documentary feature film, THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK – THE TOURING YEARS. The 4K restoration with sound remastered at Abbey Road Studios includes performances of the classic songs such as A Hard Days Night, I’m Down, Everybody’s Trying To Be My Baby and Dizzy Miss Lizzy.
THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK – THE TOURING YEARS is based on the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966) – the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim – from the early Beatles’ journey in the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966. It explores how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become this extraordinary phenomenon, The Beatles. It delves into their inner workings – how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together – all the while, highlighting The Beatles’ extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities.
The bonus 30 minute Shea Stadium performance includes a set list of Beatles classics including Twist and Shout, She’s a Woman, I Feel Fine, Dizzy Miss Lizzy, Ticket to Ride, Everybody’s Trying To Be My Baby, Baby’s in Black, Act Naturally, A Hard Day’s Night, Help! and I’m Down. The Beatles: Eight==Days a Week – The Touring Years screens at Cinema Paradiso from Friday, September 16 to Wednesday, September 21. Click here for more details or to buy a ticket.
