The Beatles film

Moving Image had planned to show THE BEATLES: EIGHT DAYS A WEEK: THE TOURING YEARS next week, on Tuesday 14th Feb but the licence to show the film is still awaiting confirmation from the distributors. That means that, regrettably, we may have to cancel or postpone and possibly show an alternative film. We will send out a final notification via our mailing list and post here as soon as we know, and will keep the website updated so please check back to find out what is going to happen.


  • Update: the Beatles film will now be shown ( licence permitting!) on 28 Feb instead of Woody Allen's CAFE SOCIETY which will now be shown on Tues 14 Feb. 
  • Given Thursday's election maybe CRIMES & MISDEMEANORS would have been more appropriate?  That or BANANAS.
  • Postponed event - screening now confirmed:

    Tuesday 28 February
    7.30pm William Loveless Hall

    (PG) 137 mins UK/US 2016

    In 1962 four young men - John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr - came together to form the 20th century musical phenomenon known as 'The Beatles'. The band stormed Europe in 1963 and, in 1964, they conquered America. Their groundbreaking world tours changed global youth culture forever and, arguably, invented mass entertainment as we know it today. All the while, the group were composing and recording a series of extraordinarily successful singles and albums. However, the relentless pressure of such unprecedented fame (which in 1966 became uncontrollable turmoil) led to the decision to stop touring. In the ensuing years The Beatles were then free to focus on a series of albums that changed the face of recorded music. Master storyteller and Oscar winner, Ron Howard, explores this incredible journey in his own unique way: How did The Beatles do this? How did they cope with all the fame and pressure? How did they not only survive, but go on to revolutionise popular music? With original interviews, footage, staggering live performances, and the intimate study of character that Ron Howard is known for, he puts us right inside this extraordinary adventure, answering the question everyone always wants to know: What was it like to be there?
