It's a classic move. Get plently of hype for George, then have Yoko use all that awareness for John's 71th, and then continue riding the attention to big sales. Classic. Olivia and Yoko would deny it, but I find it much more then coincidence.

Does that mean we get the next remaster/remix releases of John's catalogue. Its been a whole year since Imagine was repackaged. An available gap/opportunity before the 40th anniversary celebration/release of Imagine in 2012.

Reading that has just made me so excited, honestly. It's going to be incredible.

I'm thinking about going down to London with a friend to watch this in a cinema in Soho on October 4th. Train tickets included, we could probably go for around £30 each. I think I'm far too excited to contemplate this logically, so do you guys think it's worth it, or should I just wait a week for the DVD?

I'd do it. The DVD would cost a similar amount, and you would have much more fun at the theatre as compared to your house.

I'd go in a flash! I wish a trip to London with tickets would cost me 30 pounds!

You'll be able to buy the DVD any time later when you can.

If I could see it at a cinema, I'd do it in a heartbeat. I was so hoping that it would be that way here in the U.S. 

I am completely bummed that it is on HBO instead. I'm with kaleidoscopeyes in that I do not subscribe to it.

Curse you, premium cable channels!!

So that's a unanimous yes then! I've booked the cinema tickets, and have warned my friend that I will be in tears throughout. I'm all set! a-hard-days-night-george-8

Does anyone know if this Deluxe Edition is going to be released in the United States or only in the UK?

I know the DVD and Blu Ray will be available in the next few months after HBO has run it's course but not sure about this collector's edition.

Long article in today's New York Times on the making of the documentary. [more flattering than today's Macca review!]a-hard-days-night-george-10

Going to the New York opening on Oct 4 - pretty excited about it.

Ive booked tickets to the showing in Glasgow on the 4th October. Starts at 1/2 6 in the evening, is in 2 parts with a 30 minute break, has a running time of 3 hours 28 minutes, and i have no idea how i will get home (i stay 25 miles from Glasgow in the middle of nowhere and i dont drive). 

I too am excited.

I saw Yellow Submarine on the big screen when it was reissued and that was fab so seeing this should be just as good, far better than on the tv.

Have also discovered that i saw a reissue of A Hard Days Night in the cinema which i had forgetten all about. I found the ticket stub for the yellow submarine screening in amongst old beatles newspapers. The price on the ticket was £1.80! No idea why it was that cheap

I've done the same for the London viewing! Mine doesn't start until 8:15, so I won't be getting home until at least 1am. Totally worth it.

Hopefully going to the Henley showing next Tuesday! Fingers crossed.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

From what the theatre is saying the screening should be really busy. Their advice is get there around 30 minutes early if picking up tickets to avoid long queing. Really good to hear as the film deserves to be seen as does Georges story.
