On Friday 22nd August Phoenix will be opening its inner courtyard for its first ever outdoor film event, screening the classic Beatles movie A Hard Day’s Night to mark the 50th anniversary of what is widely regarded as one of the greatest rock and roll films ever made.
Filmed at the height of Beatlemania in 1964, and produced on a shoestring budget , A Hard Day’s Night follows The Fab Four as they travel from Liverpool to London for a TV show. Now digitally remastered and back on the big screen, A Hard Day’s Night is the perfect way to launch Phoenix’s open air film events.
Doors open at 8pm on Friday 22nd August and the film will start at sundown; singing and dancing will be positively encouraged! A limited number of seated tickets are available for £6.00 and blanket/cushion spaces are available for £5.00 – please bring your own blanket/cushion with you. Drinks and snacks will also be on sale.
“There’s something very special about watching film outdoors – there’s a distinct feeling of community at an open air screening – so we’re incredibly excited about our latest venture and hope it will be the first of many outdoor film events at Phoenix.” Patrick Welsh, marketing manager at Phoenix
This promises to be a magical evening under the stars in the very heart of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter, so book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone or in person at the Phoenix box office and there is no booking fee. Full details are available at www.phoenix.org.uk.
