ROLLING BACK IN TIME TO 1964!

„HARD DAYS NIGHT” BY THE FOUR LADS FROM LIVERPOOL ARE ON SCREEN AGAIN!

URÁNIA CINEMA – BUDAPEST – OCTOBER, 30. 2014.

Some folks were not even born in those days … some already screamed and shouted. Will be interesting to see what to-day’s  youngsters think about the movie.

Going out to the Uránia Cinema and to watch the Hard Days Night movie is like hitting two birds with one stone!

No need to raise your eyebrow, here comes the answer ….

The Urania Cinema is not only one of the oldest and prodigious cinema in Budapest, but also one of Europe’s most marvellous theater building, built-in neo-Moorish style -1894.  Way back in time, originally it was operating as a club, science promotional events later scene, eventually fated adventure movies and last but not least over the past years, beside classical and contemporary films. The Film Theater presents the world’s awesome productions sharing films taken at the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Moscow Bolsoj Ballet, the Saint Petersburg Mariinsky Theater, the London Royal Opera House, the National Theater, and Shakespeare’s Globe Theater with their digital HD projectors and sound system these become very popular by the movie lovers.

It is also a moody meeting place for public to be in a superb environment to have a cuppa of tea and snacks whilst waiting to have your seat and watch one of your interested films. Well, this was just a short background added to the Uránia Cinema, as a drop of water into the Sea.

The real update is about THE FILM which most probably by millions around the world have had already seen when they were in their teens. Yup, talking about the „HARD DAYS NIGHT” Staring John Lennon R.I.P. , Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison R.I.P. and Ringo Starr, directed by Richard Lester.

The movie is celebrating its 50th anniversary and can be seen as digitally restored in high quality pictures and remastered 5.1 surround sound on the big screen. The film is coming out again in your town and all over the world again. The sound was mixed by Giles Martin, the Beatles producer George Martin’s son who’s name is also connected to the legendary Abbey Road Studios.

The movie takes place in ’64 and is a documentary, ​ shows a realistic picture in 24Hs where and what’s about to happen before a live recording the television show with the four lads from Liverpool, namely THE BEATLES … John, Paul, George and Ringo. The four lads decided for the first time not to pay too much attention to the rules they are given and go on their own to get a taste a bit of freedom. So they circumvented as many rules as they bear to do so. The figure that twists-and-turns the happenings is caused by Paul’s grandpa, who needs extra attention.  More than a dozen of well-known Beatles tunes fulfill the air at the cinema and listening to these „oldies” will surely bring back many folks cool and superb memories that’s for sure.

The „Hard Days Night” first comeback intro started on October, 30. 2014. at the Uránia Cinema in Budapest and in the forthcoming weeks it will be covered at 14 countrywide at main cinemas … at  Balatonfüred, Debrecen, Eger, Hévíz, Jászberény, Kecskemét, Miskolc, Poroszló, Salgótarján, Szeged, Szentgotthárd, Szolnok, Szombathely és Tapolca.
