Maysles Cinema Wednesdays at Nowadays Presents:

Maysles Brothers: Beatles Vs. Stones Part 1
What’s Happening: The Beatles in the USA

Introduced by Jessica Green, Maysles Cinema Director

Albert and David Maysles, 1964, 74 min
A humorous, freewheeling and candid account of the Beatles arrival in America in February 1964. The Maysles follow the Fab Four for five days, from the crazed JFK airport reception to unguarded moments inside the Plaza Hotel in preparation for their landmark Ed Sullivan Show appearance to their equally frenzied homecoming. Inspiring Richard Lester’s A Hard Day's Night (1964).
