‘Nowhere Boy’ located in Tribeca

Premiere of film about a young John Lennon draws Ono

Almost 30 years after his death, John Lennon still draws a crowd. The Weinstein Co.’s “Nowhere Boy,” Sam Taylor-Wood’s chronicle of the future Beatle’s adolescence in Liverpool, had its U.S. premiere at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center, drawing Salman Rushdie, Harvey Keitel, Michael Stipe and, naturally, Yoko Ono.

“John would have loved (‘Nowhere Boy’) because he would have been glad that you would know his pain,” said Ono. “His pain made him wise.”

Before the screening, Harvey Weinstein told the aud of his own Lennon moment, saying, “I started out as an intern for Apple Records. My memory of it is a little hazy, if you know what I mean.” Later, he expanded on that comment: “I was 16 years old, and I picked Lennon up at the airport while I was interning with Apple Records. Back then it was still called Idlewild, I think.” JFK, to be exact. – — Robert Voris
