Restored 4K Theatrical Version With Remixed 5.1 Stereo Surround Sound

Yellow Submarine, based upon a song by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, is a fantastic tale brimming with peace, love, and hope, propelled by Beatles songs, including “Eleanor Rigby,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds,” “All You Need Is Love,” and “It’s All Too Much.” When the film debuted in 1968, it was instantly recognized as a landmark achievement, revolutionizing a genre by integrating the freestyle approach of the era with innovative animation techniques.

Yellow Submarine was restored in 4K digital resolution by Paul Rutan Jr. and his team of specialists at Triage Motion Picture Services and Eque Inc. The film’s songs and score were remixed in 5.1 stereo surround sound at UMG’s Abbey Road Studios by music mix engineer Peter Cobbin. Due to the delicate nature of the hand-drawn original artwork, no automated software was used in the digital clean-up of the film’s restored photochemical elements. This was all done by hand, frame by frame.


Modern Rocks Gallery will host a pop-up gallery in the lobby of the AFS Cinema during our run of YELLOW SUBMARINE. Among the prints will be a never-before-seen contact sheet print from the original press reception for the film, featuring George, Ringo, and a Blue Meanie!


Attendees of YELLOW SUBMARINE shows from July 8 through July 15 will be entered to win special prizes, including the new Yellow Submarine graphic novel and a Yellow Submarine picture book.
