MYSTERY TOUR

   "The Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour" broadcasted in black and white on BBC1 in 1967 to a family audience expecting a light entertainment special.

Now, 45 years on, the virtually forgotten film has been fully restored and is being presented properly for the first time in select cities. 7 p.m. MDC Tower Theater, 1508 SW Eighth St., Miami. $8 for MDC students and staff, seniors and Miami Film Society Members. $10 others.
