The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years

"Howard manages to make the best known story in pop sound fresh: his film is strong on communicating a sense of exactly what was new about The Beatles at the time." - Time Out

“The Beatles: Eight Days A Week — The Touring Years,” directed by Ron Howard, is a thoroughly delightful, crisply edited film that takes viewers to Europe, Australia, the Far East and the U.S. where, between June 1962 and August 1966, the Fab Four played in 90 cities in 15 countries.

By using home-movie footage in hotel rooms, fly-on-the-wall tape from the studio control room, Howard’s film often succeeds in making you feel it all from the four lads’ astonished point of view.

Along with the talk — a lot of it from Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr — comes the concert footage, including a knockout “Twist & Shout” (Manchester, 1963) and a rendition of “Help” (Blackpool, 1965) that showcases the quartet’s ineffable coordination of a disarmingly honest lead lyric, euphonious answer harmonies, explosive guitar licks and locomotive drums.

Screening in tandem with “Eight Days A Week” is a new print of the 1965 concert at Shea Stadium with a soundtrack so clear you can finally hear the lyrics over the hysterical girls, including Lennon’s hilarious gibberish intro to “Hard Day’s Night.” -  Seattles Times

EXTRA ADDED SHORT: The celebrated performance at their Aug. 15, 1965, Shea Stadium concert with remastered sound will be added to our screenings of 'Eight Days A Week: The Touring Years'.
