Good news for Beatles fans who have been with the band since the early days, as well as newcomers who have found a love for the lads from Liverpool following the release of the Peter Jackson-directed, three-part Disney+ documentary, The Beatles: Get Back.
The Beatles’ famed final public live performance on January 30, 1969 in London on the roof of 3 Savile Row, the group’s Apple Corps headquarters, is now set to screen in IMAX Theaters for a limited time. As an added bonus, The Beatles: Get Back director Peter Jackson will participate in a special Q&A to be broadcast via satellite immediately following the film’s special release.
Although the concert is already included in the Disney+ doc, this 60-minute version set to hit IMAX Theaters in multiple states later this month will feature remastered and optimized audio and video. The Beatles: Get Back – The Rooftop Concert will premiere on January 30, 53 years to the day after the group’s last public performance.
“I’m thrilled that the rooftop concert from 'The Beatles: Get Back' is going to be experienced in IMAX, on that huge screen,” Jackson said in a statement. “It’s The Beatles’ last concert, and it’s the absolute perfect way to see and hear it.”
Following the premiere on January 30, additional theatrical releases are scheduled for February 11 through 13 -- as well as Blu-ray and DVD options which will arrive in the U.S. on February 8. Tickets are available now here.
