What better way to celebrate the exhibition Mary Quant: Fashion Revolutionary than two iconic, groovy, cinematic classics that will transport you back to the swinging sixties!
Alongside a fully stocked bar, you can catch A Hard Day’s Night – a 1964 rock-and-roll romp following "a day in the life" of The Beatles as fame takes them by storm – and mystery thriller Blow-Up, by critically acclaimed director Michelangelo Antonioni, wherein a bored mod-photographer discovers he’s unknowingly captured a crime scene on film.
Illustrating the British Invasion, the sexual revolution, youthquake and mod culture, showcasing a myriad of miniskirts and supermodels, and with cutting-edge sixties soundtracks, these films epitomise Swinging London like no other.
Swinging Sixties: Double Feature will be located at The Hollywood in Avondale, New Zealand’s longest-running cinema palace.
A Hard Day’s Night (1964)
This musical comedy, directed by Richard Lester, stars John, Paul, George and Ringo as they travel to London and attempt to record a performance on live television while evading teenage fans.
