The Beatles' "Yellow Submarine" Gets a Digital Makeover
Yellow Submarine runs June 8 and June 10-12 at the Castro Theatre.
(Cartoons are a gateway drug, don't you know?) Made with the Beatles' grudging cooperation and a handful of songs -- until they saw the finished film, and embraced it wholeheartedly -- Yellow Submarine stands as a timeless villains-and-heroes fantasy. The re-release of a digitally restored print invites us to consider the age-old question: Is the movie aimed at children, acid-heads, or the multitudes of blissful Beatles fans? The answer (of course) is yes.
Yellow Submarine starts at 7 and 9 p.m. at the Castro Theatre, 429 Castro (at Market), S.F. Admission is $7.50-$10.
