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.
