Waaaaaay back in March of 1964, my friend and I decided to see the closed-circuit version of The Beatles Washington, DC., concert - even though we saw it in person. (Actually we were hoping to see ourselves there. :)
Well, it was altered a bit but the Beatles footage was obviously as we remembered it "LIVE."
That said, I BEGGED the Theater manager to please give me the poster that advertised the event. My side of it was that it was ONLY playing for two days and the marketers would probably get it back and then just trash it.
He said no more times than I could count. I kept it up and even went back the next day.
Tenacity paid off and I got it!!!! He took the key out of his pocket, opened up that cool-looking brass poster holder in the lobby and I got the poster of my dreams! I rode back home on the bus and it went straight up on my wall.
That was 47 years ago.
I have had estimates on it from 1,000 to 25,000 dollars because there are but a few left, and only abut 1,000 were printed in the first place.
Anyone have an idea what it would be worth at this time?
I would be most appreciative.
P.S. OH... and I mention that very poster
in my book, "A Date with a Beatle"
