Details Dates/Times & Buy Tickets
In 1964 the biggest band on the planet made their big screen debut in this groundbreaking film that presented a 'typical' day in the life of The Fab Four as they tried to outrun screaming fans. They find Paul's grandfather (Wilfred Brambell), deal with a stressed TV producer (Victor Spinetti) and still make it to the show on time.

Directed with unrelenting verve by Richard Lester whose innovative techniques paved the way for generations of music videos, the film's frenetic mix of comic escapades, legendary one-liners and pop perfection captured a moment in time that defined a generation. The most iconic band in music history had arrived.

This is a rare opportunity to see the 2014 4k restored version showcasing Gilbert Taylor's luscious black & white photography with sound restored by top Abbey Road team Giles Martin and Sam Okell. A real treat!
