Filming: A Hard Day’s Night

The Beatles filmed the opening sequence for A Hard Day’s Night on 5 April 1964 at London’s Marylebone Station.

The station was closed to the public on Sundays, allowing The Beatles to film the necessary scenes without interruption. A scene at Boston Place was also filmed, with the group running towards the camera while being chased by fans.

Filming at the station took place over two consecutive Sundays. On this first day, over a hundred fans were filmed chasing after The Beatles. The extras were paid £7 10s. On the second Sunday The Beatles acted in the empty station without the crowds.
