To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles: Yellow Submarine film, Astor Theatre is hosting a once only free screening as a gift to Melbourne Beatles fans.
This free event will be on August 25th at 2 pm. You cannot prebook your free tickets but they are available on the day from midday, two hours before the session commences. The limit is two tickets per person.
This is a blast from the 60s and an unmissable cinema event for Beatles fans, lovers of animated movies and a new generation wanting entrance to the legendary Pepperland.
This visionary film was designed by the great art director Heinz Edelmann and it is full of psychedelic effects not to mention Beatles quips and antics.
The difference from when you may have seen it last is that it now has glorious surround sound with a groundbreaking animation presented in stunningly-remastered 4K. The 2012 restoration was in fact painstakingly done by hand, one frame at a time.
To see it on the big screen will an unforgettable experience as the upgrades to the film, include the digital treatment of the music and the animation, which have made Yellow Submarine into a much sharper and more engrossing film.
The work is a hybrid of music, film and art.
Yellow Submarine tells the story of how The Beatles battle the music-hating Blue Meanies armed with the power of love.
Enjoy some of The Beatles most loved classics including 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds', 'Nowhere Man', 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'All You Need Is Love'.
