The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years
The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years is based on the first part of The Beatles’ career (1962-1966) – the period in which they toured and captured the world’s acclaim. Ron Howard’s film explores how John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together to become this extraordinary phenomenon, “The Beatles.”
Directed by Ron Howard (Splash, Backdraft, Far and Away, Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon)
It explores their inner workings – how they made decisions, created their music and built their collective career together – all the while, exploring The Beatles’ extraordinary and unique musical gifts and their remarkable, complementary personalities.
The film focuses on the time period from the early Beatles’ journey in the days of The Cavern Club in Liverpool to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966.
The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years was produced with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison.
NOTE: Following all feature screenings, be sure to stay for the newly-restored 30-minute film of The Beatles’ historic concert at New York’s Shea Stadium in 1965! The Beatles at Shea Stadium is exclusive to the theatrical release of the movie.
"With the Beatles' company Apple Corps as one of the producing partners, Howard's access to original material was presumably nonpareil. And with a subject as rich as the Beatles, 'you know that can't be bad.'"
"You can't watch them in these days and not be caught up in Beatlemania."
"With the help of some obvious talking heads, and some less predictable ones, [Howard] tells a familiar tale with a surprising and at times thrilling amount of originality."
