Film Screening: What's Happening! The Beatles in the USA Thursday, May 8 · 7 pm to 8:30 pm. Members · FREE, Non-member · FREE, Register online. Travel back to 1964—the year the Museum was established—after which rock 'n' roll and music fans would never be the same. As described by the directors Albert and David Maysles, this film is a humorous, freewheeling, and candid account of The Beatles arrival in America in February 1964. The Maysles follow the Fab Four for five days, from the crazed JFK airport reception, to unguarded moments inside the Plaza Hotel as they prepare for their landmark Ed Sullivan Show appearance, to their equally frenzied homecoming.
