Varsity Center to Screen The Beatles’ Film A Hard Day’s Night
Carbondale, IL. The Varsity Center will present the classic Beatles film “A Hard Day’s Night” June 29 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5.
Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan Show appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. “A Hard Day’s Night,” in which the bandmates play wily, exuberant versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever.
Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester and featuring a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “I Should Have Known Better,” and “If I Fell,” “A Hard Day’s Night,” which reconceived the movie musical and exerted an incalculable influence on the music video, is one of the most deliriously entertaining movies of all time.
Come sing along with the Beatles!
