Yellow Submarine (U)

50th Anniversary Screening

Yellow Submarine returns 50 years on

An icon of psychedelic pop culture, Yellow Submarine is a colourful musical spectacle and a joyful cinematic experience for all – full of invention, optical illusions, word play, and glorious music. 

Once upon a time...or maybe twice...there was an unearthly paradise called Pepperland, 80,000 leagues under the sea it lay, a place where beauty, happiness, and music reign supreme. 

But this peaceful harmony is shattered when the Blue Meanies invade with their army of storm bloopers, apple bonkers, snapping turtle turks, and the menacing flying glove in an attempt to stop the music and drain Pepperland of all colour and hope.  So it’s The Beatles to the rescue, as our heroes team up with Young Fred and the Nowhere Man to free Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, make peace with the Meanies, and restore music, colour, and love to the world. 

But beyond all the glorious music, Yellow Submarine is a landmark in animation, with Heinz Edelmann’s inspired art direction conjuring up a non-stop parade of wildly different styles and techniques.
