"A Hard Day's Night" on the big screen in an art deco theater


"A Hard Day's Night" will be playing one day only on Feb. 17 at the luxurious Castro Theatre in downtown San Francisco. There will be two showings at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. The Criterion Collection has released the film on DVD and Blu-ray. The double bill that night will also feature a rare big-screen showing of the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy For the Devil" at 5:30 and 9:30 p.m. 

The theater is located at 429 Castro Street (at Market Street). It is accessible by the MUNI bus line from the K, L or M lines. Muni bus lines that stop nearby are the 33, 35, 37 and 24. The F streetcar runs down Market Street. We saw "Yellow Submarine" there several years ago. The place is gorgeous and has a wonderful sound system.
