The Fab Four are returning to the silver screen in a old classic. The Beatles’ film “A Hard Day’s Night” has been digitally restored in 4K resolution, and will play in 50 cities over America’s July 4 weekend.

Criterion Collection has taken on the task of the restoration, while the restoration itself has been approved by the film’s legendary director Richard Lester.

The film was made on a budget of $500,000 and shot in black and white. In a decade that was dominated by John, Paul, George, and Ringo, the film made $12 million at the box office.

The film's soundtrack has also been remastered by producer Giles Martin, so we can expect both the film and soundtrack available for home viewing in the not too distant future!  “A Hard Day’s Night” will join their other films “Help!”, “Magical Mystery Tour”, and “Yellow Submarine” on Blu Ray when it is finally released. That will leave “Let It Be” as the only movie left to be restored. However, seeing that it was never even available on DVD, and showed off a dark side of the band, I doubt we will be seeing it anytime soon.

“A Hard Day’s Night” received two Oscar nominations for Alun Owen’s script, and George Martin’s score. Songs featured in the film included some of their biggest hits such as “Can’t Buy Me Love”, “And I Lover Her”, “I Should Have Known Better”, and the titular track.
