UK outfit Picturehouse Entertainment has struck a deal with Apple to release a digitally remastered version of the Beatles’ animated movie Yellow Submarine in cinemas for the first time since 1999.
The 4K version is due to play in Picturehouse and other UK and Ireland cinemas on July 8, 2018 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of its original release.
The iconic musical feature, designed by art director Heinz Edelmann, tells the story of how The Beatles battle the music-hating Blue Meanies armed only with the power of love. The film features performances of Beatles classics including Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, Nowhere Man, Eleanor Rigby and All You Need Is Love.
Clare Binns, deputy managing director of Cineworld-owned Picturehouse, said: ”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!” For more click here
