A special screening of "The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years" this Thursday will raise money for an educational program that will put the film and related materials in U.S. classroom.

Deadline Hollywood reports:
The NYC premiere will serve as a fundraiser to help support the RRFF’s educational efforts. Van Zandt and Paul Shaffer will co-host the event that will include celebrity guests, teachers, students and donors.

Two days later, in conjunction with Scholastic Inc. as partner and with the support of Apple Corps, the classroom materials will be available at teachrock.org, joining more than 70 pre-existing multimedia lesson plans on the free site.
