50 YEARS AGO … THE BEATLES …”HARD DAYS NIGHT”… BUDAPEST – HUNGARY

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.

The National Theater of Miskolc was Hungary’s first indoor theater spoken the language of the country.

Where …  1. Déryné Street – Miskolc.

Just about 190 years ago on August, 24. 1823 opened its doors to the public. To honor this illustrious anniversary, the Miskolc National Theater held a full-day unforgettable „190th YEAR BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION” on Saturday, September 1. 2013. The program started as the clock hit the 10 a.m. with fanfare in the windows around the Déryné park and the countdown by tens went from 190 to open the celebration to the National Theater of Miskolc 190 years of existence. Then step-by-step at the theater’s entrance platform theater members came and gave a short performance and roles of the company’s past and recent repertoire. Yet, this time the comedy was not missing in their show-off.

As the clock hit the 10 a.m. fanfare in the windows around the Déryné park and the countdown by tens went from 190 to open the celebration to the National Theater of Miskolc 190 years of existence.

Then step-by-step at the theater’s entrance platform artist members came and gave a short performance of their past and recent plays. At first, the  opening sentence was Tatars in Hungary, by Attila Béres.

One of the most attractive scene was brought by the play of Shakespeare “To be or not to be” … a’la 6 great monologue clash, directed by Csaba Kiss.

Back-in-time with the remembering actress and actor Ms. Éva Ruttkai and Mr. Zoltán Latinovits meeting at Miskolc, narrator Artúr Szöcs.

An hour before noon, at 11 a.m., game-time … kids time … hullabaloo kids:  Table-tennis, theatrical makeup for girls and boys,  animals costume, fashion show.

As they say … Long live those who from time-to-time have some rest! Sun beds and parasols, refreshments and of course the famous local beer, the „Korty”, at the locally brewery and other Borsodi beer were to please and add a little rest for the parents.

3 p.m. Street Party with the members of the Miskolc Ballet.

4 p.m. Staying by the figures to the year 1823 of the National Theater opening, came the running race of 1823-meters. Individuals, beside the theater members fasten their running shoes and off they went for a run of 1823 meters in distance. The distance was twice the length to-and-from the stage entrance door. The winner of the race received two-tickets to an evening’s performance.

Usually, when you receive an invitation to join and celebrate a birthday party, you carry a gift. Here at Miskolc, the National Theater presented more than one gift to its faithful audience of their repertoire. What a day… four plays in a row in one day from their last season was brought on stage: The Garret, The Bald Soprano, Hamlet, Play it again, Sam! and the one-time played, Carmen in ballet.

As the day turned into the night, getting close to the end of the 1st. of September, 190 piece of candles were brought to the entrance, under the arcades of the theater, whereas a serenade by the Symphonic Orchestra of Miskolc, conducted by Mr. Ádám Cser was held beside the candlelight. Was a splendid, unforgettable day for locals, individuals from other regions of Hungary and the tourist in town spending time, seeing how the Hungarians partied, celebrated the 190 years old National Theater.

I hope by the time you read this update to the bottom line you will also wish to be a part and have seats at the Miskolc National Theater’s one or more than one of their plays, musicals, opera and so forth, if not you’ll pretty sure miss something awesome performances to see. Aware it is not fair to mention only one of the day’s gift show, but cannot hold back the superb show by the actor Mr. László Görög, as Allan Félix, in the play of Woody Allen … Play it again, Sam. Many of us witnessed a unique show directed by Mr. Attila Béres with the great scenes brought on stage by the production designer Mr. Balázs Horesnyi .

Was a splendid, unforgettable day for locals, individuals from other regions of Hungary and  indeed for those tourists being at the right place in the right time, being in the hustle at the City of Miskolc.
