John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s ‘Imagine’ Film Returns to Theaters: Inside the Restoration Process

The 1972 film Imagine, which John Lennon and Yoko Ono co-directed, co-wrote and co-starred in, featuring cameos by Andy Warhol, Fred Astaire, Miles Davis, George Harrison and more, has been remixed, re-mastered and restored for one-off and limited-run theater screenings worldwide, starting tonight (Sept. 17), with theater-only extras and select viewings in Dolby Atmos surround sound.

The film — restored by Simon Hilton, remixed and re-mastered by Paul Hicks, with Ono serving as producer and creative director — is like an indie music video compilation of all the Imagine album songs, plus some from Ono’s Fly. The couple co-produced the album with Phil Spector.

Eagle Vision is pairing Imagine and another restored film, Gimme Some Truth, for release on DVD and Blu-ray on Oct. 5, the same day the six-disc box set, Imagine: The Ultimate Collection, drops.

New Version of the Beatles ‘Let it Be’ Film to be Released!

Paul McCartney said in an interview with Radio X in Quebec, Canada, that a new version of the Let it Be film is likely to be released. He said that the original film was about the Beatles break-up and was sad. However, Paul said that there is over 50 hours of footage, and the overall feeling was “Joyous, just 4 guys making music. He added the new film could come out in “a year or too”

What do you think of this? Should the original film be released, or a new version. Is making a new version re-writing history?

It’s his first debut at No. 1, and first chart-topper since “Tug of War” in 1982.

Paul McCartney achieves his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart in over 36 years, as his new studio effort, Egypt Station, bows atop the list.

The set, which was released on Sept. 7 via MPL/Capitol Records, launches with a larger-than-expected 153,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 13 according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 147,000 were in traditional album sales.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Sept. 22-dated chart, where Egypt Station debuts at No. 1, will be posted in full on Billboard‘s websites on Tuesday, Sept. 18.

It’s the season for Beatles in New York! When Ringo Starr played at Radio City Music Hall

NEW YORK: It’s the season for Beatles in New York City.

Within a week of Paul McCartney playing a surprise show at Grand Central Station, Ringo Starr followed a more old-fashioned path Thursday night. The drummer and singer headlined a two-hour show at Radio City Music Hall, with thousands spending much of the performance standing and cheering along.

“We love you, Ringo!” one fan called out, and Starr shouted greetings in kind.

It was not a time for lamenting the state of the world. The beloved ex-Beatle wore black, but bright stars hung above the stage and peace signs beamed from behind. Starr’s message for years has been peace and love and a happy look back, whether through such Beatles and solo favorites as “Yellow Submarine” and “Photograph” or through the songs of his current set of sidemen.
