Description

To honour and celebrate John Lennon on what would have been his 80th birthday on October 8, 2020 we invite you for a special screening of Imagine, the ground-breaking music film directed by John & Yoko. 

 

In 1971, during and after the recording of the Imagine album, John Lennon & Yoko Ono filmed all the proceedings at their Tittenhurst home and studio, their journeys to London and New York, and created a conceptual film also called Imagine, edited to a soundtrack created from their albums, Imagine and FLY. Remastered frame-by-frame from the original film negative, and remixed from all the original multitrack audio sources in glorious 7.1 Surround Sound and Dolby Atmos (for theatres) by multi-Grammy® Award winner Paul Hicks, this collage of colour, sound, dream and reality stars John Lennon and Yoko Ono with George Harrison, Fred Astaire, Jack Nicholson, Andy Warhol, Dick Cavett and many more.

 

The film will be accompanied by exclusive cinema-only bonus footage featuring John Lennon performing tracks in the studio with The Plastic Ono Band: George Harrison from The Beatles, Nicky Hopkins from The Rolling Stones, Alan White from Yes, and dear friend Klaus Voormann.
