Rosendale Rocks with Films on Beatles, Big Star, and more

Posted By on Thu, Jul 3, 2014 at 9:00 AM

The Beatles in A Hard Days Night.
  • The Beatles in A Hard Day's Night.

To commemorate our nation’s birthday—or maybe just to have an excuse to show some cool movies—the Rosendale Theater has put together a really explosive mini-film series it’s calling its "July Fourth Music Invasion Weekend."

The Fourth of July is also the 50th anniversary of the classic Beatles film A Hard Day’s Night. On July 4, 5 and 7, the historic Rosendale movie house will screen Criterion Collection’s glorious, newly restored print of the immortal 1964 musical comedy. But wait, there are more treats in store. The series continues on July 5 with a showing of the Big Star documentary Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, which will be coupled with a Q&A with the film’s director, Drew DiNicola, and a book signing by local author Holly George-Warren of A Man Called Destruction, her biography of Big Star main man Alex Chilton. July 6 features showings of Martin Scorcese’s film of The Band’s final concert, The Last Waltz, and Jonathan Demme’s live Talking Heads movie, Stop Making Sense.

Here’s the official trailer for the re-release of A Hard Day’s Night:
