The 1982 re-release opens with a short prologue set to "I'll Cry Instead", a number originally recorded for the film but not used. The reissue also features a new stereo soundtrack.
In the television show sequence, the song "You Can't Do That" was cut from the original film. In the 30th anniversary special on the making of the film, the cut scene featuring the song is shown after the special.
In July 1998, Miramax acquired the full rights to the film from original producer Walter Shenson. The film will be re-released in march 1999 (its 35th anniversary) in a restored, digitally-remastered version featuring new footage and six-track stereo sound.
Years before the advent of DVD, A Hard Day's Night became the first major motion picture to be released in CD-ROM format for the home computer market, with supplementary material included.
