Deconstructing the Beatles’ Rubber Soul

These screenings of Deconstructing the Beatles’ Rubber Soul are pre-recorded performances.

In October 1965, the Beatles were faced with an impossible task: to produce a new album of original music for a Christmas release that year. A month later they emerged with Rubber Soul, which promptly hit number one on the charts. Learn the stores behind the creation of “Norwegian Wood,” “In My Life,” “Nowhere Man,” and other classic Beatles songs.

Deconstructing the Beatles with Scott Freiman

After a few years of hosting Scott Freiman’s incredibly engaging series, Deconstructing the Beatles, we’re now proud to be filming his performances, which will allow them to be distributed widely. We are thrilled to be screening the four we’ve shot and hosting three brand-new shows, which we’ll capture on film this summer.

Scott Freiman combines his love of the Beatles with his experience as a composer, producer, and engineer to deliver unique multimedia presentations about the band’s creative process. With rare insights, anecdotes, film clips, and recordings, he takes audiences on a journey through performances and recording sessions, allowing viewers to see and hear the evolution of groundbreaking songs and understand their lasting influence on popular music. Freiman has composed music for more than 10 films, as well as the Emmy-award–winning BBC/Discovery series Life.

Tickets: $8 (members), $13 (nonmembers)
