Join Laemmle's NoHo7 for a special 4-film retrospective on the Fab Four!  The Beatles Film Fest is a 3-day event starting this Thursday Jan. 31 and running through Saturday Feb. 2.

It all starts this Thurs. night at 7:30pm with the rarely shown I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND (1978), the zany and thoroughly captivating first-time feature from director Robert Zemeckis chronicling the early days of Beatlemania.

We follow that up Friday at 10pm with the 2007 romantic musical hit, ACROSS THE UNIVERSE which we will do Sing-A-Long style!  

Saturday is JOHN LENNON DAY with a double-bill starting at 11am with the little-known, yet critically-acclaimed 1988 documentary IMAGINE: JOHN LENNON. This is followed at 1:30pm with NOWHERE BOY a 2009 award-winning feature staring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Kristin Scott Thomas that poignantly explores John's formative adolescent years, his growing friendship with Paul, and the birth of the Beatles itself. 

Les Perry, host of KCSN 88.5's popular "Saturday with the Beatles" will join us throughout the festival to introduce the movies, talk Beatles, and perhaps even play some of his favorite tunes.  The festival will also feature giveaways by our sponsor, BACKBEAT, the exciting Beatle's stage show now playing at the Ahmanson. With all the pre-show festivities, attendees are advised to come early!

Advanced tickets are being sold for a special price of $6.  Regular admission is $11 (if available).  For info & tickets, visit http://www.Laemmle.com/Beatles.
