The Beatles ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ to Return to Theaters

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the release of their first film, the Beatles will bring ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ back into movie theaters across the country. You can view the trailer above.

The L.A. Times reports that it will be re-released on the Fourth of July weekend, very close to the original U.K. premiere date of July 6, 1964. The soundtrack has been newly mastered and mixed for 5.1 surround sound by Giles Martin, the son of original Beatles producer Sir George Martin, who worked on the 2009 remastering of their catalog, as well.

‘A Hard Day’s Night’ will also be re-released as a Criterion Collection Blu-ray/DVD on June 24. The set includes a 4K digital restoration with three audio options, commentary by cast and crew, several documentaries about the making of the movie and two pieces devoted to director Richard Lester.

Originally intended to capitalize on the Beatles’ rising fame, ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ surprised everyone, especially critics, by not being like the other movies that featured pop stars at the time. “We’d loved ‘The Girl Can’t Help It’ and we knew that you could make a rock ‘n’ roll film,” Paul McCartney said. “We’d seen these little American productions and, although they were low budget and not very good, they did have music and we always went to see them.”
