KCSN/Los Angeles, which broadcasts from the campus of California State University, Northridge, is throwing an appreciation event later this month to thank its many contributing supporters and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of the iconic Beatles’ film “A Hard Day’s Night.”
The celebration, made possible by Street Food Cinema, includes an exclusive outdoor screening of the movie and a performance by Ticket to Ride, a Beatles tribute band. It will take place the evening of Saturday, Aug. 30, at the Northridge Little League Park, 18805 Devonshire St. in Northridge.
“KCSN is public radio, which relies heavily on contributing members to stay on the air,” said Sky Daniels, general manager and program director of KCSN. “We have not been able to thank our members in this way in a very long time. This is the first of many great membership appreciation events to come. Members are automatically eligible to attend special events, including the annual fall benefit concert, and receive free concert tickets all year long.”
Current KCSN contributing members are eligible for a complimentary pair of tickets to the event if they sign up before Aug. 24 at the KCSN Ticket Window on the station’s website, www.kcsn.org.
Admission to the event begins at 5:30 p.m., followed by the band’s performance at 6 p.m. and the screening of the G-rated movie at 8:30 p.m. The evening will include food trucks, giveaways and games.
Members of the general public also are invited to attend the event. Tickets are $17 for reserved seating, $12 for general admission, $11 for reserved seating for children between the ages of 6 and 12, and $6 for general admission for children between the ages of 6 and 12. Children under the age of 5 may attend free of charge.
