Rare Beatles film auctioned off

  • Source: star-ecentral.com

A rare 8mm film reel featuring an impromptu Beatles show has been sold at auction.

The silent two-minute film, shot in Kansas City, Missouri, during the band's first tour of the US in 1964, fetched £4,100 at the sale in Reading. It shows the band at a performance at the Municipal Stadium.

It was shot by fan Drew Dimmel, who, as a 15-year-old boy, sneaked a movie camera into the concert hall.
