Uprising: Spirit of 68’ Season

Yellow Submarine: 50th Anniversary (U)

Thu 19 July at 2.30pm & 7.30pm

As part of the BFI’s Uprising: Spirit of 68’ Season and the Gedling Borough Arts Festival, we’re screening Yellow Submarine, an unmissable big-screen revival giving generations of audiences the golden opportunity to revisit Pepperland for the 50th anniversary of the film’s original release.

1968 wasn’t just a seismic year politically, it also produced its fair share of brilliant films, many of them reflecting the tumult of the times. This Summer is the perfect opportunity to explore the social and cinematic legacy of this unique period.

Illustrated with mind-bending moving images, Yellow Submarine tells the story of how The Beatles battle the music-hating Blue Meanies armed only with the power of love, perfectly portraying the counter-culture movement of the 1960s.

This visionary feature film, designed by the great art director Heinz Edelmann, can now be experienced in glorious surround sound with the ground-breaking animation presented in stunningly-remastered 4k. Looking and sounding better than ever before, join John, Paul, George and Ringo on the technicolour adventure of a lifetime.

From Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds to Nowhere Man, and Eleanor Rigby to All You Need Is Love, the movie features some of the most-loved songs from the greatest band the world has ever known.

An exuberant fusion of music, film and art, Yellow Submarine is a landmark cinematic experience that’s as fun and vibrant as it was in 1968.

Directed by George Dunning. Starring: Paul McCartney, George Harrison, John Lennon & Ringo Starr (1hr 26 mins // UK 1968)
