Revivals Film Screening: A Hard Day's Night

Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston serves as the exclusive Houston venue for the U.S. release of the 50th anniversary restoration of A Hard Day's Night. Experience this digitally restored classic in 4K resolution, enhanced by a new 5.1 sound mix produced by Giles Martin, son of longtime Beatles manager George Martin.

When worldwide Beatlemania hit in 1964, United Artists wanted to ship out a Beatles movie before the vogue was over. Working within a tight $500,000 budget, director Richard Lester turned out A Hard Day's Night in a fast six-and-a-half weeks. Using a variety of techniques cribbed from Hollywood slapstick comedies, the French New Wave movement and his own experiences as a TV-commercial director, Lester fashioned an exhilarating study of a typical 36 hours in the lives of the Fab Four. Songs include "And I Love Her," "Can't Buy Me Love," "I Should Have Known Better," "If I Fell," "Tell Me Why" and the title song "A Hard Day’s Night."
