“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.”

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. 

An unmissable cinema event, this momentous big-screen revival will give generations of audiences the golden opportunity to revisit Pepperland for the 50th anniversary of the film’s original release.

The visionary feature film can now be experienced in glorious surround sound with the groundbreaking animation presented in stunningly-remastered 4K. Looking and sounding better than ever before, join John, Paul, George and Ringo on the technicolor 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.

An exuberant fusion of music, film and art, “Yellow Submarine” is a landmark cinematic experience that is as fun and vibrant as it was in 1968.
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.
