The Beatles beat the Yankees!

Brooklynites gathered at St. Philip’s Parish in Dyker Heights on Oct. 21 for a Beatles tribute concert staged by a local performing arts company. The event was one in a series of the group’s concerts, according to the organizer, but this one was particularly well attended by rock-loving locals.

“The turnout was great,” said Anthony Marino of BrooklynONE Productions. “With the Yankees’ game going on, we were a little worried. But we had a great crowd — they were on their feet singing and dancing with us.”

The singers crooned favorite Beatles hits pulled from the movie “Across the Universe,” the 2007 musical romantic drama based on the British rock band’s greatest hits.

Brooklynites who turned out to the Saturday night concert heard the movie’s versions of tunes including “Hey Jude,” “All You Need is Love,” and “Let it Be,” with a special encore performance of “Twist and Shout” concluding the hour-and-a-half performance.

Proceeds were shared betweenSt. Philip’s and BrooklynONE Productions, Marino said.
