"Beale Revealed" was shot in three days, but symbolizes 30 years of nightlife and music.

"We hope the video goes viral because it's the next best thing to being on Beale," said Beale developer John Elkington. "We've had 30 great years and there are many more to come, a never-ending celebration in Memphis."

The creators and producers of this video hope it will stir memories for many and beckon new visitors to the Memphis landmark.  Mobile users, click here to see the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYtGXPX2z-s
