A day after we reported that the Beatles film “Good Ol' Freda” would be screened in Cleveland, the filmmakers on Saturday announced another new showing at a film festival. The “Good Ol Freda” Facebook page announced it will be screened at the Atlanta Film Festival March 16, a week after its world premiere.
“Think fast, Atlanta! 'Good Ol' Freda' has confirmed a 3/16 screening at the Atlanta Film Festival. That's just two weeks from today so get your tickets now - filmmakers will be in attendance!,” the Facebook post read.
As we reported Friday, the film will be screened in Cleveland roughly a month after its world premiere at South By Southwest. For the complete back story on the movie, see Beatles Examiner's complete coverage of “Good Ol' Freda.”
OFF AND RUNNING: Writer Mark Lewisohn now has a website www.thebeatlesbiography.com and a Twitter account to promote his upcoming multi-volume biography of the Beatles. “It all boils down to this. They were four war babies from Liverpool who really did change the world, and whose music and impact still lives on in so many ways, after all these years. I say, let’s scrub what we know, or think we know, and start over: Who really were these people, and how did it all happen? ,” reads the promo on the website. Judging from the Facebook reaction, a lot of people can't wait to find out what Lewisohn has uncovered.
THROUGH THE MISTS OF TIME: As part of some changes to his website, Paul McCartney began a feature called “You Gave Me the Answer” where he'd answer fans' questions. The first question, from Luana in Brazil, read, “What would you do if you had a time machine?” Paul's answer, posted last week, was short and sweet: "Go back and spend time with my mum."
