A newly restored version of this film will be playing at theaters around the country this summer — not in Las Vegas, you’ll notice, but it’s always a hard day’s night here. If you’re going to be in any of the cities listed at the link below, check it out:
I saw the first showing of the film in Washington, D. C. when it came out with my friend Bill Bowman. The theater was electric with excitement before the show, and when the United Artists logo came up on the screen, people (mostly girls) started screaming and didn’t stop until the film was over, with spikes of hysteria at the first appearance of each Beatle and during the songs.
I had to go see it again the next week, when things had calmed down a bit, just to hear what was going on on the soundtrack.
