Critic’s Notebook: A Hard Day’s Half-Century

The Beatles classic celebrates 50 years

This Friday marks the 238th anniversary of the United States’ Declaration of Independence, but there’s actually another upcoming anniversary that’s well worth celebrating this weekend, as well: The Beatles film A Hard Day’s Night turns 50 on July 6. You can commemorate it by checking out a newly restored version of the classic at Atlanta’s historic Plaza Theatre, July 4-10. Happy Fourth... and Happy Hard Day’s Night!
