Film Screening in Cuba Pays Tribute to the Beatles
The Cinematheque of Cuba begins on Wednesday a varied program in homage to The Beatles and linked to the tribute that the world offers the legendary English band every year.
With the name The Beatles Week: all its images and sounds, the tribute will take place at 23 y 12 movie theaters, headquarters of the entity, and the Chaplin cinema's Charlot room, and will run until January 20. According to Antonio Mazon, programmer of the institution, the films will be screened during the week in new and remastered movies related to the life and career of the successful band formed in Liverpool. Among the clips chosen are 'Help!' with great audio and image quality and subtitling of songs, 'the Magical Mystery Tour' in a new and subtitled copy, and the documentary 'Let It Be'. Since 1991, the Cinematheque of Cuba has been offering to audience films and documentaries dedicated to rock music and the Beatles has been an essential part of this initiative due to the validity and transcendence of its musical memory. This special initiative is part of Global Beatles Day, a date chosen with all intention to recall the performance of the band at La Caverna club, which welcomed them more than 200 times in 1961 and 1963.
