Todays Show Times:

Watch Trailer Director: George Dunning
Cast: The Beatles

Newly restored in 4K with 5.1 Surround Sound for its 50th anniversary, Yellow Submarine is a fantastic tale brimming with peace, love, and hope, presented today more complete and colorful than ever before. It is propelled by essential 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. 

After the success of our Beat the Heat showing July 21st, the Athena will bring back Yellow Submarine for two encore presentations on Friday, August 10th and Saturday, August 11th. These showings will feature sing-along subtitles so audiences can join in making beautiful music with the Beatles to this stunning restoration. Tickets are $8 (Members $4) and are available now at the Athena Cinema.

An endlessly inventive picture that blends 1960s psychedelia with such diverse styles as pop art and Art Deco to create the fantastical world of Pepperland and its bizarre inhabitants.
