Beatles’ first film showing in Memphis next month

All you need is love and $8 to grab a seat July 9 for Indie Memphis’ presentation of the new 50th anniversary restoration of “A Hard Day’s Night.”

The one-night-only showing of The Beatles’ first feature-length film in collaboration with The Recording Academy Memphis Chapter takes place at Malco’s Studio on the Square, with showings at 7 p.m. and 9:15 p.m.

Tickets will be available at www.indiememphis.com/beatles starting June 6 at 10 a.m.

The tech department of Criterion has spent the last several months restoring the film in 4K resolution, working from the original camera narrative. The final master was approved by director Richard Lester, and the film’s new 5.1 mix was completed at Apple Studios by Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer George Martin.
