The “Beatles: Get Back” Rooftop Concert to Screen on IMAX This Month
The docuseries will also finally be released on Blu-ray and DVD on Feb. 8
Good news for fans who couldn’t get enough of Peter Jackson’s The Beatles: Get Back: the rooftop concert footage from the popular Disney+ docuseries is hitting the big screen at the end of the month.
As Deadline reports, a 60-minute cut of the rooftop concert will be screened in select IMAX theaters on Jan. 30, the 53rd anniversary of the Fab Four’s final public performance. The event will also feature a Q&A with Jackson, which will be broadcast via satellite simultaneously to all participating IMAX locations.
“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.”
“Ever since Peter Jackson’s beautiful and illuminating docuseries debuted, we’ve heard non-stop from fans who want to experience its unforgettable rooftop performance in IMAX,” Megan Colligan, president of IMAX Entertainment, added. “We are so excited to partner with Disney to bring Get Back to an entirely new stage and give Beatles fans everywhere a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch and hear their heroes in the unrivalled sight and sound of IMAX.”
Following the IMAX screening on Jan. 30, The Beatles: Get Back–The Rooftop Concert will also receive a global theatrical run from Feb. 11 through Feb. 13. And the rooftop concert screening isn’t the only big news related to The Beatles: Get Back: the complete docuseries will finally be released on Blu-ray and DVD in the U.S. on Feb 8, meaning you’ll be able to rewatch the moment when George Harrison quits the band as many times as you want without needing a Disney+ subscription.
