Beatles’ ‘Get Back’ rooftop concert coming to Cincinnati Museum Center



Attention Beatles fans: the iconic “Get Back” rooftop concert is coming to the big screen in Cincinnati. 

For three shows only, the Cincinnati Museum Center’s Omnimax Theater will be screening “The Beatles: Get Back – The Rooftop Concert.” The documentary includes the Beatles’ Jan. 30, 1969, concert on the rooftop of Apple’s headquarters on Savile Row in London in its entirety.

Showtimes will be Feb. 11 at 6 p.m., Feb. 12 at 2 p.m. and Feb. 13 at 2 p.m. In addition to showing the 40-minute concert, the documentary will also show behind-the-scenes of the Beatles’ preparation to perform. 

The original plan for the Get Back project was to get the band performing on stage again, but George Harrison was against the idea of a massive concert. There was talk of the show being held in the Roundhouse in Camden, the Royal Albert Hall or the Tate Gallery. In the end, the band played their final show together on the rooftop of Apple.

“If you were on the streets of London in 1969, you wouldn’t feel as close to the Beatles’ iconic final concert as you will in the Omnimax Theater,” Dave Duszynski, president of Mercury Museum Services, a subsidiary of Cincinnati Museum Center, said in a release. “The theater’s sound system, paired with the Beatles’ music, shakes you in your seats for an unbelievable, immersive concert experience.”
