Cinema Series: The Beatles Yellow Submarine

Jul 17 2018 - 7:30pm

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of its original release, The Beatles classic 1968 animated film, Yellow Submarine, gets a cinematic tour of North America, restored in 4k and rereleased in stereo surround sound!

An icon of psychedelic pop culture, Yellow Submarine is a colorful musical spectacle and an exhilaratingly joyful cinematic experience for all ages - filled with visual invention, optical illusions, word play and glorious, glorious music.

Once upon a time ... or maybe once or twice ... there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland; 80,000 leagues under the seat it lay, a place where beauty, happiness and music reign supreme.

But this peaceful harmony is shattered when the Blue Meanies invade with their army of storm bloopers, apple bonkers, snapping turtle turks, and the menacing flying glove in an attempt to stop the music and drain Pepperland of all color and hope.  So, it's The Beatles to the rescue, as our animated heroes team up with Young Fred and the Nowhere Man and journey across seven seas to free Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, make peace with the Meanies, and restore music, color and love to the world. 

Beyond all the glorious music, Yellow Submarine is a landmark in animation, with Heinz Edelmann's inspired art direction conjuring up a non-stop parade of wildly different styles and techniques.  From the paper-doll residents of Pepperland, to the tinted photography of the soot-covered roofs and smokestacks of Liverpool, the menagerie of fanciful characters in the Sea of Monsters, the kaleidoscopic color-splashed rotoscoping of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, the vertigo-inducing op-art of the Sea of Holes, and the triumphant euphony of the It's All Too Much finale, the film is simply a joy!

Rated G, the film runs one hour, 25 minutes.
