2018 marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles‘ Yellow Submarine animated film. If you missed it in theatres the first time around (or you weren’t alive), here’s your chance to catch it on the big screen.
The film will return to North American theatres this July, thanks to a joint effort from Abramorama, Apple Corps Ltd., and UMG. It was restored in 4K definition, and the audio was remixed in 5.1 surround sound.
“We’re thrilled to have the privilege of bringing Yellow Submarine back to the big screen so that three generations of happy Beatles fans can enjoy the ground-breaking animation and classic tunes and that have long been part of our collective cultural DNA,” said Abramorama CEO Richard Abramowitz.
Because the original film is hand-drawn, special efforts had to be taken to maintain the integrity. No automated software was used; the efforts were done by hand, frame-by-frame.
For those who haven’t seen it, Yellow Submarine is based on the song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, infamously sung by Ringo Starr. The optimistic film includes Beatles songs like “Eleanor Rigby”, “When I’m Sixty-Four”, and “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.”
