Yellow Submarine (50th Anniversary Remaster!)

Yellow Submarine (50th Anniversary Remaster!)

6:00pm - Saturday, Aug 11, 2018

Celebrate 50 wondrous years of The Beatles' animated musical classic YELLOW SUBMARINE with a big-screen viewing of this icon of psychedelic pop culture - beautifully restored and remastered in 4K! This colourful musical spectacle is 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 twice!) there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland, 80,000 leagues under the sea 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 colour 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, colour, and love to the world.

But 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 Liverpool, the menagerie of fanciful characters in the Sea of Monsters, the kaleidoscopic colour-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.

YELLOW SUBMARINE (George Dunning, 1968 / 88 mins / G) The Blue Meanies take over Pepperland, draining it of all its color and music, firing anti-music missiles, bonking people with green apples, and turning the inhabitants to stone by way of the pointed finger of a giant blue glove. As the only survivor, the Lord Admiral escapes in the yellow submarine and goes to Liverpool to enlist the help of the Beatles.
