Beatles' 1964 film classic 'A Hard Day’s Night' coming to 'Flickers at the Junction'

A United Artists lobby card plugs the Fab Four's first film.

 
The Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society is proud to present the Fab Four in their 1964 smash hit comedy "A Hard Day's Night," on Saturday, April 4, 2009 at dusk.

The screening is part of the "Flickers at the Junction" film series. The Beatles' first film will be shown outdoors (weather permitting) in glorious black and white at the historic Saugus Train Station at Heritage Junction in Newhall.

Suggested donation is $5, which includes free popcorn.

A day in the life of the biggest rock 'n' roll band of all time is depicted in "A Hard Day's Night," written by Alun Owen, directed by Richard Lester and produced by Walter Shenson.

John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr frolic and sing their way through the insanity that was Beatlemania at its height.

This hilarious, song-packed film (including six new originals!) is the standard by which every other rock 'n' roll film has been judged since.

"More than a movie, it is the answer to a maiden's prayer," as Time magazine put it (Aug. 14, 1964).

The Saugus Train Station is located at Heritage Junction (inside William S. Hart Park) at 24107 Newhall Avenue (formerly San Fernando Road), Newhall 91321.

Gates open at 6:00 p.m. and the film begins at dusk. 

Movie-goers should take their own lawn chairs, blankets and jelly babies.
