The Beatles Moments In Film - Picturehouse Spotlight

The Beatles Moments In Film

Beatles songs in movies are hard to come by, but when they make an appearance they create some of the most memorable scenes in film.

In anticipation of the new Beatles themed film Yesterday written by Richard Curtis and directed by Danny Boyle, we curated a list of the top 5 Beatles moments in movies.

Yesterday comes out 28 June!


1
Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Twist and Shout appears in the famous parade scene of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off whenFerris hops on a parade car and puts on an unexpected show. Soon after, everyone at the parade begins to dance and sing along to this cheerful Beatles song.


2
Across the Universe

The musical Across the Universe, based on songs by The Beatles brings spectacular covers accompanied by visually stunning scenes. In this particularly powerful scene, Strawberry Fields acts as a framework to evoke the pain endured by war.


3
The Social Network

In the very last scene of the film The Social Network, the song Baby You’re a Rich Man plays in perfect juxtaposition as we learn that Mark Zuckergberg became the youngest billionaire in the world.


4
Bowling For Columbine

In this important Micheal Moore political  documentary about gun violence in America, Bowling For Columbine, a montage showing the absurdity behind gun laws in the U.S uses the song Happiness is a Warm Gun to capture Moore’s satirical stance on the matter.


5
The Royal Tenenbaums

After Richie, one of the Tennenbaum sons in The Royal Tenenbaums by Wes Anderson, releases their pet falcon Mordecai, we see the bird free and soaring through the skies as the chorus of Hey Jude plays.
