Heartland Film's inaugural signature fundraiser, Cinemania Presented by F.A. Wilhelm Construction Co., was an epic Tribute to The Beatles in Film! On April 19, 2024, we came together for an immersive evening of live music, psychedelic photo experiences, fab food and of course, drinks that made us feel all right! America's premier tribute band from Chicago, BritBeat, headlined the night. Through elaborate costume changes, they took us through The Beatles eras, including the Ed Sullivan Show, Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road.
