Beatles 1964 Concert Film Screenings Postponed
We have bad news for those who were hoping to attend screenings of ‘The Beatles: The Lost Concert’ on May 17 and 22. Due to specified issues, the movie’s run has been postponed until they can be resolved by the documentary’s producers, with a hopeful target date of the late summer 2012.
“It’s regrettable that these issues have caused the cancellation of our planned limited engagement” said Darryl Schaffer of Screenvision, the film’s U.S. distributor. “We are looking forward to their resolution so we can bring ‘The Beatles: The Lost Concert’ to even more Beatles fans and theaters in the U.S.”
‘The Beatles: The Lost Concert’ contains the complete footage from the Beatles first concert in the United States on February 11, 1964 at the Washington Coliseum in Washington, D.C. This was only two days after their historic U.S. television debut in front of 73 million people on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show.’ Although the concert is little more than 30 minutes long, the producers added archival footage and interviewed fans, journalists and DJs who remember the show, as well as rock legends Chuck Berry, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry.
Full refunds will be given to those who purchased advance tickets.
