You can always count on Rob Newton to come up with something fun, which is exactly what we need in the dead of winter. Here’s what he’s got cooked up for this weekend.
CAPE ANN COMMUNITY CINEMA CELEBRATES
THE BEATLES AT 50
Beatles tribute band, film, plus new short this Saturday
Acclaimed local Beatles tribute Studio Two will kick off the night taking moviegoers and fans back to the early 1960s when The Beatles were taking the world by storm.
In the new documentary short “The Beatles Boston,” filmmaker and lifelong Beatles fan Eric Green examines The Beatles’ history with the city of Boston. Featured interviews include Cha-Chi Loprete (the host of WZLX’s “Breakfast With The Beatles” program) and Tim Riley (NPR music critic and John Lennon biographer). The film illustrates why Boston has always loved The Beatles and continues to today.
The feature-length “The Beatles: First U.S. Visit” documents the Fab Four during their two week trip to New York, Washington, D.C., and Miami Beach. Footage includes an intimate look at the Beatles off-guard, off- and on-stage, their historic appearance on the Ed Sullivan show, and the rise of Beatlemania.
Ticket prices are $14.00 for adults, $12.00 for Cinema members. Advance tickets are suggested, and may be purchased at www.CapeAnnCinema.com.
ABOUT STUDIO TWO
Studio Two is a Beatles tribute band that pays tribute to the early Beatles years, choosing songs from the pre-Sgt. Pepper era. These four lads met in a “cellar full of noise” in a town west of Liverpool––way west––in Milford, New Hampshire, and very faithfully recreates the Fab Four’s music, instruments, and onstage banter.
