VFS screening of Good Ol’ Freda

November 19, 2013 @ 7:15 pm - 10:00 pm

Good Ol’ Freda will screen on Tuesday November 19 at 7:15pm, at the VFS’s new state of the art location, 420 E. Santa Clara St. Tickets are $10 general, $7 for seniors and $5 for students. n the early 1960s, Freda Kelly became one of the most envied women in the world, and I bet you’ve never even heard of her. “I was a fan myself,” Freda Kelly says, from her vantage point some 50 years down the road. An average Liverpool teenager who’d finished high school and gone to work as a typist, Freda heard of a hip new band called the Beatles playing at a local club. She quickly became a regular at their lunchtime shows and eventually got to know them a bit, never daring to imagine where this chance meeting would take her. Director Ryan White will attend along with Ventura journalist Ivor Davis, who traveled who traveled with the Beatles on their first American tour in 1964, and will conduct a post-screening discussion with the filmmaker.
