Starring: The Beatles

A joyful, phantasmagoric blend of colorful animation and the music of the Beatles, Yellow Submarine is delightful (and occasionally melancholy) family fare.  The Beatles’ 1968 classic animated feature film (fully re-stored in 4K, Surround sound), Yellow Submarine, you can have the first ever Beatles’ Sing-A-Long version! Audiences of all ages will be able to “come together” and sing along to many of the band’s most catchy and iconic tunes.

Yellow Submarine, based upon a song by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, is a fantastic tale brimming with peace, love, and hope, propelled by Beatles songs, including “Eleanor Rigby,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds,” “All You Need Is Love,” and “It’s All Too Much.”  When the film debuted in 1968, it was instantly recognized as a landmark achievement, revolutionizing a genre by integrating the freestyle approach of the era with innovative animation techniques.

Inspired by the generation’s new trends in art, the film resides with the dazzling Pop Art styles of Andy Warhol, Martin Sharp, Alan Aldridge and Peter Blake. With art direction and production design by Heinz Edelmann, Yellow Submarine is a classic of animated cinema, featuring the creative work of animation directors Robert Balser and Jack Stokes with a team of animators and technical artists.

"Submarine is still a breakthrough combination of the feature film and art's intimacy with the unconscious." TIME Magazine

"It is beautifully simple and childlike on one level, and erudite and deep on another." Roger Ebert, 1968
