The Fab Four’s famous first foray into film is considered one of the most innovative and refreshing music movies ever made. Celebrating the phenomenon of Beatlemania in 1964 and capturing John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr in their electrifying element, A Hard Day’s Night is a wildly irreverent journey through one day in the life of arguably the world’s greatest rock’n’roll act.
Driven by madcap humour, timeless pathos and an irresistible sense of adventure, join The Beatles as they travel from their home town of Liverpool to London for an all-important TV performance. Along the way the band are not only mobbed by obsessed fans, but tasked with rescuing Paul’s mischievous grandfather (Wilfrid Brambell) from moments of high peril as well as keeping an eye out for a wandering Ringo who manages to disappear just before the concert.
Nominated for two Academy Awards®, featuring all-time favourites ‘A Hard Day’s Night’, ‘All My Loving’, Can’t Buy Me Love’, ‘I Should Have Known Better’, ‘She Loves You’, ‘Tell Me Why’ and many others, directed with flair by Richard Lester, A Hard Day’s Night is a lively trip back to a fun era of sensational music marking the true birth of British Beatlemania.
