Screenvision sets ‘Beatles’ release date

Docu preems May 6, followed by limited release

Screenvision has set a limited release for May 17 and 22 for the documentary “The Beatles: The Lost Concert” following a May 6 world premiere at New York’s Ziegfield Theater.

The 92-minute film includes the birth and impact of Beatlemania in America and includes, in its entirety, their first-ever full U.S. concert performance from February 11, 1964 at the Washington Coliseum in Washington, D.C.

The 12-song set lasted a little over a half-hour and included “She Loves You” and “Twist and Shout.” The show was broadcast a month later via closed-circuit to movie theaters across America to 2 million patrons but the film was then lost.

Screenvision said the original master tapes have been restored and re-mastered.

The film includes interviews with Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, Chuck Berry, concert promoter Sid Bernstein, George Harrison’s sister Louise Harrison and Beatles historian Bruce Spizer.

Screenvision’s presenting the film in partnership with Ace Arts and music documentary producer Iambic Media.
