CELEBRATE THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY! HOSTED AND CREATED BY MARVIN ETZIONI
July 18, 2016
Imagine a theater. As Chuck Berry would say, “the place is packed.” The lights go out. An album cover is on the screen, and suddenly, a vinyl record begins to play. From the first song on side one, to the last song on side two — no phones, no computers, no interruptions. This is The Record Theater. Back for the seventh time by popular demand, the GRAMMY Museum invites you to the Clive Davis Theater to experience The Record Theater. Released in August 1966, Revolverquickly rose to No. 1 on the charts and earned a GRAMMY nomination for Album Of The Year. After the record ends, special guests Brian Kehew, co-author ofRecording The Beatles, and Chris Carter, host of “Breakfast with the Beatles”, will join Record Theater creator Marvin Etzioni onstage for a discussion.
To quote John Lennon from 1966: “What’s going to come out of the next recording sessions? Literally anything. Electronic music, jokes… one thing’s for sure: the next LP is going to be very different.”
And it was! Come here to the Record Theater and hear Revolver.
Whether you’re an audiophile or just discovering vinyl for the first time, get your tickets now. Screaming girls will not be admitted without a legal guardian.
