On this day, at Twickenham Film Studios, The Beatles filmed the scenes for A Hard Day’s Night inside the police station. The exterior shots of the station were filmed in London’s Notting Hill Gate on 16 April.
This was one of two sequences soundtracked by ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ in the film.
The shoot took place not at a genuine police station, but at Twickenham Film Studios in south east England.

What I truly love about this scene as everyone is running back and forth on the sidewalk, some guy is trying to steal a car. If writer Alan Owen had not written him in it would have been a VERY boring scene. Emeraldeyed
