A Hard Day's Night

It’s an overused word, but “iconic” applies here. Beatlemania was well under way when the moptops’ rough and ready film début charmed even the critical fuddy-duddies with its good-natured youthful exuberance, offhanded “day in the life” non-plot and interruptions for hits such as “Can’t Buy Me Love.” The Beatles’ sensibility blended with witty American director Richard Lester, who’d worked with Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan, and the results shaped the development of music videos. Texas Public Radio closes out its Cinema Tuesdays series with a screening of the G-rated gem. $10-$15, 7:30pm, Santikos Bijou, 4522 Fredericksburg Rd., (210) 734-4552
