Many consider it the best rock movie ever made; an argument can certainly be made that it's the most influential. And no less an authority than my hero and Sun-Times colleague Roger Ebert has called it "one of the great life-affirming landmarks of the movies."

Join me and "Sound Opinions" co-host Greg Kot as we introduce the Beatles' first movie, "A Hard Day's Night," at the historic Music Box Theatre, 3733 N. Southport, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 28. Advance tickets are $9, $8 for WBEZ members and students, on the Web.

AHDN's status as the most influential rock movie ever can't be seriously questioned. A long list of great musicians have cited it as the major inspiration for forming a rock band, including Tom Petty, Roger McGuinn and, I think, Bruce Springsteen.
