The screenings are part of a limited worldwide run, and the Huntington showings will be the final opportunity for fans and historians to experience the Beatles’ cinematic, artistic vision – the only released film actually produced and directed by the group – in a theater. The event, which anticipates the upcoming DVD release of the film is being made possible through arrangements with the Beatles’ Apple Corps, Ltd. Apple Films have fully restored the long out-of-print, classic feature film for October 8th release worldwide (October 9th in North America) on DVD and Blu-ray with a remixed soundtrack (5.1 and stereo) and special features.
The members of the Fab 4 Free 4 All produce a weekly Internet radio program, about the Beatles and the solo work and lives of the individual group members, that is available for free on iTunes, as well as on their official website. The cast of the show are Long Islander’s Tony Traguardo, a music historian, broadcaster (WCWP) and lecturer, Rob Leonard, host of WHPC’s ‘Beatlesongs, and Mitch Axelrod, author of ‘Beatletoons:
The Real Story Behind the Cartoon Beatles’. The three historians will provide insight into the origins and production of ‘Magical Mystery Tour’, as well as offer candid anecdotes about the film’s unique status among Beatle fans and collectors.
George Harrison is often credited for being the first rock musician to raise awareness of charitable causes, beginning with The Concert for Bangladesh. The late Harry Chapin carried on the important tradition by founding Long Island Cares, and members of that organization will be on hand throughout the day to accept non-perishable items and financial donations.
