|Change of plans at Yale results in A Hard Day's Night|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Wednesday, 06/18/08 9:55 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
The Beatles Anthology, scheduled to run June 21-24 at the Yale Center for British Art, has been cancelled. In its place, the Center will show four films about or inspired by the Beatles and the city of Liverpool.
The films are being screened as part of the film series Music and the Arts in Liverpool, organized in conjunction with the Center's exhibition Joseph Wright of Derby in Liverpool (on view through August 31) and with the International Festival of Arts and Ideas (June 14-28).
Backbeat (1994), directed by Iain Softley (rated R; 100 minutes), a dramatization of the Hamburg, Germany phase of the Beatles' early history, will be shown on Saturday, June 21, at 2pm.
A Hard Day's Night (1964), directed by Richard Lester (rated G; 87 minutes), will be screened on Sunday, June 22, at 2pm. Considered one of the best rock-and-roll movies ever made, A Hard Day's Night is a hilarious study of a "typical" day in the life of the Beatles.
Hear My Song (1991), directed by Peter Chelsom (rated R; 104 minutes), a film about a run-down Liverpool nightclub, will be shown on Monday, June 23, at 2pm.
And on Tuesday, June 24, at 2pm, I Wanna Hold Your Hand (1978), directed by Robert Zemeckis (rated PG; 104 minutes) will be screened. In I Wanna Hold Your Hand, several teenagers attempt to see the Beatles' first concert appearance in the U.S.
The Yale Center For British Art is located at 1080 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT. Call (203) 432-2800 or, toll free, (877) BRIT-ART. (toll- free in the US)
All screenings are in the Center's Lecture Hall and are free and open to the public. For more information, visit their online calendar.
