Ultra-Rare L.A. Screening of the Digitally Restored 1965 Classic! HELP!, 1965, Apple, 81 min. Dir. Richard Lester. Now recognized as a pop art classic in the Lester canon, HELP! overflows with sumptuous mid-era Beatles tunes and the charismatic cheek and charm of the Fab Four - who incidentally (by their own admission) were high as kites throughout the shoot! This digitally restored print has only screened once before in L.A. Don't miss this special salute to John.
L.A. Premiere! TWO OF US, 2000, Aaronson/Falk Prods., 89 min. Director Michael Lindsay-Hogg, who had directed The Beatles’ early promotional music films and their 1970 swansong LET IT BE, made this charming dramatization of the true-life last encounter between John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Nineteen years after these musical blood brothers first met, what would be their last time together is charming, funny, insightful and poignant.
Introduction by Beatles scholar Martin Lewis.
