Check It. The Beatles' first U.S. concert.

Simply said, there will never be another Beatles. There will never be another Beatlemania (don't be fooled by the Bieber Fever), there will never be another Lennon/McCartney. And so we must cherish that which it was.

The best way to do that? Celebrate the 47th (!) anniversary of the Beatles' arrival in America by checking out a screening of their first U.S. concert, something that hasn't been shown since it happened. The concert took place in Washington D.C. back in 1964, and was broadcast in movie theaters two days after the show. Now, thanks to the American Cinematheque, you'll get to see history being made, a musical revolution coming together, all in its glory. You'll even get to catch the openers -- just some little band called The Beach Boys (Lesley Gore was also an opener).

One screening's already sold out, so don't miss the other! Buy your tickets now.

The Beatles' First Complete American Concert is screening tonight at 11pm at the Egyptian Theatre, located at 6712 Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood.
