Filming: A Hard Day’s Night

This was the first day of filming at the Scala Theatre in London, where the performance finale of The Beatles’ first film A Hard Day’s Night took place.

In all The Beatles were at the Scala for seven working days, until 31 March when the final performance in front of an audience took place.

The Scala Theatre was situated at 58 Charlotte Street in central London. It was closed and demolished in 1969 after being damaged by fire, and was later replaced by an office block and a cinema. Today the television station Channel 4 Television owns Scala House, which stands on theatre’s former location.
