Beatles “Hard Day’s Night” plays for ONE NIGHT ONLY at the Palm Theatre on November 18th 7:00pm and 9:15pm. Timeless and worth every cent to see on the big screen amongst fans.
Richard Lester’s A Hard Day’s Night is being brought back in a newly restored print with a digitally enhanced soundtrack, and it’s better than ever. Not only has this film not dated, it may even look fresher than it did in 1964; the zigzag cutting and camera moves, the jaunty ironies and pop-celebrity playfulness, are all standard issue now on MTV and its offspring. And yet what will strike you seeing it again is what a motley set of traditions this newfangled comedy drew on; not just The Goon Show but also the British music hall and the Marx Brothers and the Keystone Kops. It’s possible to look at A Hard Day’s Night, with its fizzy innocence and its impossibly young-looking Beatles, and wax nostalgic, but really, this film is far too much fun for nostalgia.
