This iconic Beatles film is heading back to UK cinemas for its 50th anniversary

In the town, where I was born....

Yellow Submarine is heading back to cinemas across the UK later this year to celebrate 50 years since its initial release.

The iconic 1968 film sees the Fab Four heading under the sea as they battle the music-hating Blue Meanies – with the action soundtracked by classic Beatles hits including ‘Eleanor Rigby’ and ‘All You Need Is Love’.

Now, it’s been restored in glorious 4K animation and will be shown in Picturehouse Cinemas for one night only on 8 July to mark its 50th anniversary.

Tickets for the screening are set to go on sale from April 17 and you can buy them here.

Clare Binns, deputy managing director of Picturehouse, said: ”I loved Yellow Submarine 50 years ago and it still rocks the universe. This summer, Picturehouse Entertainment is thrilled to bring The Beatles back to the big screen again with a film that makes your heart beat fast.

“Bringing the film back for its 50th anniversary is great, both for those who loved it the first time around and for those new singing and dancing audiences who will be introduced to this classic music and animation. I look forward to the huge smiles on faces all across the UK and Ireland on 8 July – as the fab four said, All You Need is Love!”
