Sedona International Film Festival is the official host of the new “Deconstructing the Beatles” series, joining hundreds of theatres around the country for this special four-part event.
The third in the series — “Deconstructing The Beatles: Revolver” — will show in Sedona on Tuesday, June 20, at 7 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
In “Deconstructing The Beatles: Revolver,” composer/producer Scott Freiman takes Beatles fans young and old into the studio with The Beatles as they create their 1966 album, Revolver.
In many music polls, Revolver is rated the top album of all time. The 1966 album launched a period of studio experimentation for the Beatles that coincided with their decision to stop performing live. With memorable songs, such as “Eleanor Rigby,” “Yellow Submarine” and “Tomorrow Never Knows,” the Beatles pushed popular music to a place it had never been before.
“Deconstructing The Beatles: Revolver” explores the groundbreaking production techniques that went into creating this landmark piece of music history. In addition to many of the tracks from Revolver, Freiman will also explore the creation of two other songs recorded during the same time period, “Paperback Writer” and “Rain."
Freiman conducts an educational journey into the creative process of the Beatles performances and recording sessions.
Scott Freiman combines his love of the Beatles with his experience as a composer, producer and engineer to deliver educational lectures about the creative process of the Beatles. He moves past the personalities of the four Beatles to uncover the reasons why their music continues to be loved by millions.
His multimedia presentations transport his audiences into Abbey Road Studio with anecdotes about The Beatles’ recording sessions, allowing fans to experience the evolution of The Beatles’ groundbreaking albums and songs.
The remaining title in the “Deconstructing The Beatles” series is Rubber Soul, which will show on Tuesday, June 27, at 7 p.m.
“Deconstructing The Beatles: Revolver” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Tuesday, June 20, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 general admission, or $9 for Film Festival members.
Tickets are available in advance at the Sedona International Film Festival office; by calling 282-1177; or online at SedonaFilmFestival.org. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. SR 89A in West Sedona.
