One college wants to teach everyone about the Beatles with a course for fans that examines their career and their impact on pop culture.

Starting tonight, Penn State’s Altoona College is hosting a course called “It Was 50 Years Ago Today: An International Beatles Celebration.”

The course will include film screenings, lectures and discussions with experts to talk about their music, their career, their influence and where they fit in to music history and pop culture as a whole.

The courses begin this evening and will finish Sunday with attendees enjoying a special screening of the Beatles’ first performance on American television on The Ed Sullivan Show. For the rest of us, we can enjoy the celebration by tuning in to CBS at 7pm for The Night That Changed America.

I can’t wait!
