Beatles fans who enjoyed the broadcasting of 8 Days A Week over the Christmas period will be delighted to hear that there is another treat to look forward to in the Summer. This is surely a not-to-be-missed opportunity for all fans of the Fab Four.
Picturehouse Entertainment have announced that The Beatles’ legendary animated hit film Yellow Submarine is returning to cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 8 July 2018. This big-screen revival will give generations of audiences the opportunity to either revisit Pepperland or go there for the first time.
The release of the film coincides with its 50th anniversary, and it has had a make over for modern audiences. The visionary feature film designed by the great art director Heinz Edelmann can now be experienced in surround sound with the groundbreaking animation presented in stunningly-remastered 4k. Audiences will be able to join John, Paul, George and Ringo on the technicolour adventure of a lifetime. Illustrated with mind-bending moving images, Yellow Submarine tells the story of how The Beatles battle the music-hating Blue Meanies armed only with the power of love.
From Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds to Nowhere Man, and Eleanor Rigby to All You Need Is Love, Yellow Submarine features some of the most-loved songs from one of the greatest bands the world has ever known.
An exuberant fusion of music, film and art, Yellow Submarine is a landmark cinematic experience that is as fun and vibrant now as it was in 1968. With tickets on sale from 17 April.
Clare Binns – Deputy Managing Director of Picturehouse says: ‘I loved Yellow Submarine 50 years ago and it still rocks the universe. This summer, Picturehouse Entertainment is thrilled to bring The Beatles back to the big screen again with a film that makes your heart beat fast. Bringing the film back for its 50th anniversary is great, both for those who loved it the first time around and for those new singing and dancing audiences who will be introduced to this classic music and animation. I look forward to the huge smiles on faces all across the UK and Ireland on 8 July – as the fab four said, All You Need is Love!’
The film is sure to be a big hit with young and old fans alike. Yellow Submarine encompasses the swinging sixties more than most films released at the time. The Beatles music is the soundtrack to a psychedelic landscape that reflects the pop art movement of the time, spearheaded by the likes of Andy Warhol.
