I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND 35mm d. Robert Zemeckis, 1978 presented by Jake Cunningham at The Prince Charles (29 NOV 20:30).

  • “The directorial debut from Robert Zemeckis (FORREST GUMP, BACK TO THE FUTURE, CAST AWAY) and the first film to hold Steven Spielberg’s name as a producer, I WANNA HOLD YOUR HAND is a fascinating piece of film and music history. Behind the camera, it’s the moment that two giants of Hollywood lay a stylistic blueprint for so much of their work together in gleeful, off-beat, creative fashion. Musically, it’s also a rare opportunity to hear a huge selection of Beatles’ songs on film, which would quickly become a costly soundtrack inclusion, in the loud and lovely setting of the iconic Prince Charles Cinema.”
