"We know how to behave! We've had lessons."
On September 6th, the Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville's Old City hosted two showings of A Hard Day's Night on the "big screen," with all profits going to the Give Haiti Hope Outreach Program. It was certainly fun seeing the Beatles larger than life, and getting to recite dialog back and forth with my friend (in a quiet manner, mind you, yet no one was sitting too close to us anyway). I was disappointed in the lack of turn out, considering it was a charity event and a chance to see one of the greatest films ever made in such a gorgeous setting. The only negative was that the sound could have been better; nevertheless, it was an exhilirating experience. We capped off the evening with the Invaders at the C&G. Now if we can just persuade the Tennessee to show Help! next....
Inspired by the recent event, I decided to scan some relevant items for this post. The above article was taken from the October 2002 issue of Uncut, coinciding with the Miramax DVD release. The other photos are from the 1964 16 magazine feature on A Hard Day's Night.
