The Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine” Playing at Village East Cinema

Posted on: May 4th, 2012 at 11:40 am by

We’ve never hidden the fact that we’re head-over-heels for the Beatles. Anything and everything Fab Four, and giddy we get. Like this latest news that the original Yellow Submarine animated feature film from 1968 was recently restored and set for a limited national run during mid-May. The “premiere” event is at the Ziegfeld tomorrow night, but you can also catch it closer to home at the Village East Cinema next week (May 10 at 7pm; May 12 at 2 pm).

Here’s more from the press release:

Currently out of print, the film has been restored in 4K digital resolution for the first time by Paul Rutan Jr. and his team of specialists at Triage Motion Picture Services and Eque Inc. 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. The restored film will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on June 5 (June 4 internationally), and the film’s songtrack album will be reissued on CD on the same date.
