It's playing here at The Egyptian theater. A friend saw it last week and said it's not to be missed, and definitely on a big screen.

Ron Howard really tried on this. It should be fun.

I miss the young mop tops who made Hard Days night and the sound track of the era.. I have it on DVD and watch it sometimes as they remind me to have youthful fun. Richard Lester was a big influence to me wanting to make films. I hope this documentary will inspire a new generation in this highly difficult era of technological and social change.

Well, I guess it used to be playing here. I went searching for it today and can't find it listed within 40 miles of Seattle. What happened? Was it pre-released here and went away until national release or something?

I'm anxious to see it, but I despise going to a theater.... I'll wait for the DVD release.

I think it may have already been released on DVD. Guess I missed it in the theater, altho I kind of agree with you about the theater experience.

A week ago, we went to see Paul McCartney play the first show in the brand new Kings downtown arena. A coupla days before, we paid five bucks to stream the Ron Howard film. Then we saw the show, and then, since her brother was in town for the show, we watched the film again the next day.

This is the second rock concert I've ever been to, and it was an absolute gas and memorable. My neighbor next door, who is a big rock concert goer, had been to the first of two nights the night before and kept repeating, "Well now I've seen a Beatle. James, it was historic. An awesome concert and now I've seen a Beatle. James I can't tell you. I've seen twenty-seven Jethro Tull concerts. And now a Beatle. This is historic." The joint was stacked to the rafters with gray bearded old hippies, rocking out. Way back in April, we paid eight hundred bucks for four seats in the nosebleed of the new arena with the largest bestest jumbrtron in the league only half blocked by girders and light structures. It was worth it. Hold you hand out at arm's length and put your thumb and index finger about three eighths apart, and that is how big Paul McCartney was on stage in front of me. I waved. It was still worth it.

I cannot imagine the concert going on in the desert right now with Nobel Laureate Dylan onstage with Paul McCartney, and a bunch of others.

My neighborhood rental store said not until the 18th, and Netflix nor Comcast on demand have it. From where are you downloading it? Amazon Prime maybe?

I have a secret source :)

I watched it last night... I enjoyed it, but wasn't nearly as impressed as some people seem to be. The amount of quality footage of the Beatles during their touring years is obviously quite minimal.... just one or two appearances worth of film with decent video and audio... the rest of the actual footage is exceptionally rough. The film was more or less a limited documentary of those years, with very little follow-up. For a documentary, it was well done... just not exceptional.

Jim, I hear what you are saying here. We saw McCartney and band at the first ever event at the brand new Dallas Cowboys stadium in Arlington, TX. I have been to hundreds of concerts but this was a highlight for me. The jumbo tron TV over the 50 yard line really brought the concert up close and personal.
