As part of our Digital Cinema fund raising campaign, we invite you to join us to celebrate the swinging ‘60s in a night dedicated to the days when pop culture was born, when skirts were short and hair was long.
The evening starts with a screening of the classic Beatles’ film A HARD DAY’S NIGHT, which is unbelievably 50 years old this year.
A HARD DAY’S NIGHT
The year is 1964 and four young lads from Liverpool are about to change the world – if only the madcap world will let them out of their hotel room. Richard Lester’s boldly contemporary rock n’ roll comedy unleashes the fledgling Beatles into a maelstrom of screaming fans, paranoid producers, rabid press and troublesome family members, and reveals the secret of their survival and success: an insatiable lust for mischief and a life-affirming addiction to joy.
“It’s pure joy as I Should Have Known Better, And I Love Her and Tell Me Why pour out over footage of thousands of screaming, weeping schoolgirls with bouffant hair and miniskirts pursuing John, Paul, George and Ringo.” The Times
After the film, head upstairs to our Main Gallery for some delicious Betty Stoggs* ale (other drinks will be available) and enjoy live music from NOT THE BEATLES, Cornwall’s own Beatles tribute band. You can twist the night away and sing along to all those much-loved hits. We’ll also have a DJ playing 1960s music from other top pop acts of the decade.
This is your chance to show us your moves as prizes will be awarded. There will be games, including a twisting competition, best 60s outfit (male and female) and best 60s hairstyle.
