Yellow Submarine

Sunday, July 5, 2015, 2 p.m., Dryden Theatre

The Beatles’ foray into feature-length animation utilizes a mythical plot about the band's attempt to free the people of Pepperland from the Blue Meanies. A treat for both the eyes and the ears, the film beautifully combines the imagery of ’60s pop artist Peter Max with classic songs such as “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” and “All You Need Is Love.”

Yellow Submarine is a family movie in the truest sense—something for the little kids who watch the same sort of punning stories, infinitely less nonviolent and refined, on television; something for the older kids, whose musical contribution to the arts and longings for love and gentleness and color could hardly present a better case; something for parents, who can see the best of what being newly young is all about.” – Renata Adler, The New York Times (1968)
