The Sedona International Film Festival is the official host of the new season of “Deconstructing the Beatles,” joining hundreds of theatres around the country for this special series.
The first in the new season — “Deconstructing The Beatles: Abbey Road, Side 1” will show in Sedona on Monday, June 24 at 7 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
The Beatles’ Abbey Road is a masterpiece filled with classic Beatles songs, such as “Come Together,” “Something,” and “Here Comes the Sun.” Producer George Martin told the Beatles to think “symphonically,” and they responded by creating the remarkable side two song suite.
Abbey Road was the last time that the Beatles recorded together at EMI Studios — soon-to-be-christened Abbey Road Studios after the album’s release. Despite the bittersweet atmosphere that surrounded the recording sessions, The Beatles’ outstanding songs and performances together with George Martin’s orchestrations produced an album that continues to be regarded as one of the best albums ever created.
