Synopsis: Bring family and friends to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its release. Stunningly restored by a team of specialists, all done by hand, frame by frame. Based on a song by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Yellow Submarine is a fantastic tale brimming with peace, love, and hope, propelled by your favorite Beatles songs. You remember, once upon a time…or maybe twice… there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland. The swirling animation is a mixture of pop-culture images and modern artistic styles brought loosely together with some clever political commentary. The Blue Meanies take over Pepperland, draining it of all its color and music, firing anti-music missiles, bonking people with green apples, and turning the inhabitants to stone by way of the pointed finger of a giant white glove. How the Beatles come to the rescue is a tale…well, it’s all we need. “A film for the ages.” –Michael Sauter, Entertainment Weekly.
