In 1968, The Beatles changed the face of modern cinema with their psychedelic animated feature film. This year, it’s time for Yellow Submarine’s 50th birthday, and Arthouse Hotel is the perfect place to celebrate the golden anniversary of one of the most iconic films of all time.
Standing the Test of Time
Yellow Submarine was released at the height of Beatlemania. Following the release of the critically acclaimed, award-winning album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the band made their third appearance on the silver screen with United Artists.
The film takes the audience on an adventure through various intriguing landscapes with plenty of fan favourite songs to add an extra element to the creative and ground-breaking film. Eleanor Rigby, Nowhere Man and Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds all make an appearance in the much-loved movie.
The film was a box-office hit and drew massive crowds thanks to the creativity and uniqueness of the animated, soon-to-be classic.
To this day, Yellow Submarine is regarded as one of the most influential and genre-defining films, fusing fun with art for an unforgettable viewing experience. The film was one of the first animations to prove that cartoons aren’t just for kids and can be a great expression of originality and art, with clever wordplay and ‘dimensional illusions’ providing a thought-provoking encounter.
50 Years of Animated Magic
This decade has been a treasure trove of Beatles anniversaries and the Yellow Submarine is just one of the half-century milestones for the Fab Four.
To celebrate Yellow Submarine’s 50th birthday, a special edition comic book version of the film will be released to help celebrate the important milestone.
With Yellow Submarine effigies across the city of Liverpool, the impact of the cult film is clear to see in The Beatles’ hometown. From the submarine in the docks to the psychedelic Lambana, Liverpool knows how to pay tribute to the incredible film.
