The Beatles: Eight Days a Week at Tampa Theatre (All Week)
Famed director Ron Howard brings together found footage and never-before-seen video of the lads from Liverpool, along with new interviews from the people who were there, to tell stories about the Beatles that you’ve never heard before. Showcasing the touring years of 1963-1966 and examining the 250 concerts they played in that span, The Beatles: Eight Days A Week can be thought of as the documentary equivalent of a remastered record: it gives you the sound you already know and love, but rendered with such clarity and depth that it’s like hearing it for the very first time. Screenings at 7:30pm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Click HERE for tickets. Tampa Theatre, 711 North Franklin Street.
