Watch: Restored Lennon-Epstein film "The Hours and Times" coming to select theaters

First released in 1992, "The Hours and Times" is a fictionalized account of John Lennon and Brian Epstein's visit to Spain in 1963.


In the four days they spend together there, the suave Epstein (David Angus) and the provocative Lennon (Ian Hart in his first starring role) reflect on their lives, both private and professional, as they explore the unique bond they share. Munch’s sparse and intimate narrative, captured with exquisite black-and-white cinematography, is a thoughtful meditation on friendship and sexuality, crafted around a brief moment in the lives of two extremely well-known pop figures. The Hours and Timesis both written and directed by American filmmaker Christopher Munch, his feature directorial debut. It was first released in 1992 after premiering at the Toronto and Sundance Film Festivals. Oscilloscope Labs will re-release The Hours and Times in US theaters starting March 1st (beginning in NYC) coming up soon.
