Academy Award®-winner Ron Howard explores the extraordinary phenomenon know as “The Beatles,” starting from their days performing at Liverpool’s The Cavern Club to their last concert at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966. This special theatrical version of the film features an exclusive, fully remastered 30 minute concert of the The Beatles’ performance at Shea Stadium in 1965!

From June of 1962 to the time the band quit touring in August of 1966, The Beatles performed 815 times in 15 different countries and 90 cities around the world. The cultural phenomenon that their touring helped create, known as “Beatlemania,” was something the world had never seen before and, arguably, hasn’t since.

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years recreates the experience through the eyes of the band members themselves. Along the way, the film delves into the inner workings of the group – how they made decisions, created their music, and built a collective career together — as well as the effect those years had on their personal and musical evolution.

Drawing from more than 100 hours of rare and unseen footage collected from fans, news outlets and national archives, as well as the Beatles’ private collection, the film crafts a cinematic experience unlike any Beatles film that has come before, and unlike any other documentary. Also included are rarely seen performances, all elegantly re-cut and re-mastered in high-definition and 5.1 surround sound – making the experience the closest thing today’s audience can get to experiencing the band play live.

Experience this groundbreaking exhibition–described by The Times as “stylish & outrageous” and The Guardian as “a triumph”–on the big screen in gorgeous HD. The film takes the audience on an extraordinary journey through the “David Bowie is” exhibition with special guests including legendary Japanese fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto, Pulp front-man Jarvis Cocker, and other collaborators, to explore the stories behind some of the key objects that document Bowie’s artistic career, including a remarkable collection of photographs, stage costumes, and other rare possessions from the David Bowie Archive.

The exhibition curators, Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh, provide fascinating insight into the most memorable music videos and original costumes, as well as more personal items such as never-before-seen handwritten lyrics, album cover artwork, set designs and diary entries, which reveal the creativity and evolution of Bowie’s ideas.

Now on a global tour that has already travelled to Toronto, Sao Paulo, Berlin, and opening soon at the MCA in Chicago, “David Bowie is” now comes to Seattle through this unique cinema event.
