Beep Beep n Beep Beep, Yeah!

Following the success of last year’s inaugural film festival, Loxwood Drive-in Movies is proud to add
Drive My Car: The Beatles film festival to its 2021 programme.

The festival will feature three major feature films about the band:

A Hard Day’s Night
The Beatles’ first film, released in 1964, this became the defining ‘pop music film’ format for the era.
It was nominated for two Academy Awards.

The Cavern: The Beat Goes On
Documentary about The Cavern club, the beating heart of Merseybeat where The Beatles were first
discovered by Brian Epstein. From its evolution as a jazz club in the 1950s to the new Cavern that
stands there today, the Cavern Club still celebrates live music.

Looking for Lennon
Nominated for a National Film Award, this documentary tells the story of John Lennon’s traumatic
childhood and adolescent years through the people who knew John personally.

There Are Places I Remember

There Are Places I Remember

The Quarrymen at the Casbah Coffee Club in 1959
The Quarrymen at the Casbah Coffee Club in 1959

Join me on BBC Radio Merseyside for my feature, “There Are Places I Remember” with this week’s episode being on West Derby and Tuebrook.

Naturally, we discussed the Casbah, but there are a few lesser-known locations too, including the venue George Harrison played – in a group that wasn’t The Quarrymen – before re-forming The Quarrymen! What a story!
