A Hard Day's Night

This is part of Swinging London Cinema

Digital restoration. Plays as part of our Swinging London Cinema Series, hosted by author Shawn Levy.

Swinging London Cinema Series - We remember the rock and roll, the fashion, and the whole kids-taking-over-the-world thing. But the Swinging London of the '60s was a font of great cinema, too. In these entertaining and revealing films, the heart of the era is captured, defined, and dissected. Shawn Levy, author of "Ready, Steady, Go! The Smashing Rise and Giddy Fall of Swinging London," will present each film and moderate a post-screening chat.

A HARD DAY'S NIGHT (1964) Maybe a perfect movie. Richard Lester's make-believe vision of a couple of days in the life of The Beatles preserves the rise of the youthquake in a cross of documentary, music video, and fever dream. Joyous, playful, inventive, brimming with infectious tunes, shot in gorgeous black-and-white, full of tender moments of lost time, and utterly, utterly charming.
