Mid-Week Matinee

Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen, earning them a 1965 BAFTA nomination for Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Roles.

A HARD DAY'S NIGHT, in which the bandmates play cheeky comic versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever.

Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and features a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Should Have Known Better," and "If I Fell," A Hard Day's Night, which reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time.

Nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Story and Screenplay - Written Directly for the Screen, Scoring of Music - Adaptation or Treatment) and a Grammy (Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media).
