The Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night is to be re-released in cinemas and on DVD.
The 1964 film , which follows a day in the life of the band as Beatlemania is in full swing, has been fully restored and will be in cinemas and available to download on July 4. A limited edition DVD and Blu-ray release will follow on July 21.
Directed by Richard Lester and written by Alun Owen, the film also starred Anna Quayle, Bob Godfrey, Robin Ray, Lionel Blair and Patti Boyd.
Next week (March 20), the piano played by John Lennon and Paul McCartney while filming Help! will go up for auction. The pair used the 1907 Bechstein Concert Grand to compose the title track to the 1965 film and was used to compose ‘Yesterday’. It has been valued at £50,000 by Omega Auctions, and will be sold in Liverpool.
