LONDON.- The Getty Images Gallery today announced that it will be opening a permanent new photographic exhibition space at the Movieum of London in County Hall. The exclusive Beatles exhibition will feature rare and unseen images of the “Fab Four”, from famous photographers including Robert Whitaker, who accompanied John, Paul, George and Ringo on their 1966 Far Eastern Tour.

The launch of the collection marks the 40th Anniversary since the Beatles played their last live performance on the rooftop of the Apple Building at 3 Savile Row. The images span from 1963 to 1970 and include shots from the filming of Help and A Hard Day’s Night, as well as candid behind the scenes pictures of the Beatles on tour.

The Movieum, an interactive movie museum dedicated to unseen behind-the-scenes film stills, scripts, sets, props and costumes from some of the world’s most loved movies, opened in February 2008 at County Hall on the South Bank. The venue is owned and run by Jonathan Sands, who has roots as a stills photographer and has worked on a number of short films, music videos and commercials.

As well as the photo exhibition, there will also be a selection of Beatles memorabilia on show, including one of John Lennon’s very own Rickenbacker guitars donated by Pete Waterman OBE. Gibson Musical Instruments also be donating guitar cases signed by John Lennon and Paul McCartney as well as a section of Epiphone signature models, as used by the Beatles in the 60s.

In addition, the opening night of the exhibition will be attended by featured photographer Robert Whitaker, and Welsh actor Victor Spinetti, who featured in the classic Beatles films A Hard Day’s Night, Help! and Magical Mystery Tour.

Louise Garczewska, Director of the Getty Images Gallery said: "The opening of this new exhibition space at the Movieum is an exciting development for the Gallery and we could not imagine a better way to mark the occasion than with an exhibition featuring one of the world’s greatest bands. The images in this exhibition showcase the Fab Four at their dizzying best, capturing a selection of their oddest, funniest and loudest moments over the course of 10 electrifying years. The exhibition offers a glimpse into intimate and personal moments that will thrill all Beatles fans!”

Jonathan Sands, Chairman of The Movieum of London said: “We are enormously proud to be working with the world renowned Getty Images Gallery, To be celebrating our first anniversary with The Beatles On Film exhibition is a dream come true and the number of people wanting to participate has been fantastic. Apart from the stunning unseen photographic images, a highlight was definitely being offered the John Lennon Rickenbacker by Pete Waterman – what an amazing offer, the fans will love it! The last year has proved that The Movieum is a great family destination and also a serious centre for educating and entertaining the public through film, theatre and music. What better way to celebrate than with the Fab Four!”

The Getty Images Gallery and the Movieum are already planning a unique selection of future exhibitions which will focus on movies, music and entertainment in London. These shows will highlight the diverse imagery from the Getty Images Hulton Archive, the world’s largest photographic collection, as well as from today’s most talented photojournalists.

Framed and unframed prints from the show will be available to buy from the Movieum Gallery.
