Meet the Beatles! On February 9, 1964, the entire country fell victim to the British Invasion and stopped in its tracks to watch the Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. Now, sixty years on, we commemorate that historical event with the film that captures the essence of Beatlemania which remains undiminished after all this time. Come and sing along with all of your favorite songs (and scream if you want to!).

Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene, 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 cheeky comic 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.
