A Hard Day’s Night Screening & Tribute Concert at United Palace

Doors: 4pm | Pre-Show Concert: 4:30pm | Movie: 5pm | After-Movie Concert: 6:30pm, MOVIEPASS | Adults: $20 | Children, Students & Seniors : $15. This November marks the Beatles’ 50th anniversary of ‘The White Album.’ Kick off the celebration with a screening of the classic movie “A Hard Day’s Night,” which captured all the magic of Beatlemania in 1964. Beatles tribute band Strawberry Fields will ensure we still feel that magic by playing songs that span the Beatles entire catalogue.

This movie is the Beatles’ feature film debut and one of the greatest rock-and-roll comedy adventures ever. It pioneers the just-left-of-reality style of mock-documentary that became a staple of music biopics as fame takes John, Paul, George, and Ringo by storm.

The band Strawberry Fields features true look-alike performers, handpicked from hundreds of auditionees, who speak in Liverpudlian accents and play on the vintage musical instruments Beatles fans have come to recognize (the bassist is even left-handed, just like Paul!). It is as close to a real Beatles concert as you can get. The band is known for its 18-year weekly Beatles Brunch at B.B. Kings before it closed earlier this year and for recreating the Beatles fabled 1965 Shea Stadium concert for its 40th anniversary in 2005.
