Family Flicks: A Hard Day’s Night

  • This is a past program

It’s a wild ride being the biggest band in the world! In this cheeky misadventure, John, Paul, George, and Ringo find themselves caught up in the whirlwind of Beatlemania–chased by screaming fans, beset by squares of all types and Paul’s incorrigible grandfather. Along the way the Fab Four dazzle with some of their greatest pop hits.

(1964, dir: Richard Lester, DCP, b/w, 87 min. Screenwriter: Alun Owen. With: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr.)

Recommend for ages 8+
