  • "A Hard Day's Night"

This fourth of July, the Rosendale Theatre celebrates America's Independence Day with a British invasion. Beginning at 9:30am, the theater will host its third annual reading of the Declaration of Independence, followed by the British invaders themselves—The Beatles. To celebrate the film's 50th anniversary, the theater will present a new restoration of A Hard Day's Night. Over the weekend, the theater will also screen Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, a documentary about the best band that never made it. Director Drew DeNicola and Phoenicia-based author of the just-published Alex Chilton biography Holly George-Warren will host a postscreening Q&A. Martin Scorsese's The Band documentary The Last Waltz will also screen, along with the festival's closer, the Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense. (845) 658-8989; Rosendaletheatre.org.
