Spokane Public Radio hosted an exclusive showing of Yellow Submarine on Wednesday, August 8 at the Bing Crosby Theatre. This special evening began with a live taping of Movies 101 at 6:30pm before the film at 7:30pm.
Debuting in 1968, Yellow Submarine perfectly encapsulates the new art trends of the 60’s. The fantastical animated tale overflows with peace, love, and hope, packed to the brim with Beatles songs such as “All You Need is Love” and “When I’m Sixty-Four.” The songs and score have been remixed in 5.1 stereo surround sound at Abbey Road Studios, and the artwork was cleaned up carefully by hand, frame-by-frame. Seeing it on the big screen was a delight!
Before the show, Dan Webster, Mary Pat Treuthart, and Nathan Weinbender discussed the film as well as its influences and impacts in a live recording of Movies 101. Between the taping and the movie, 4000 Holes had an amazing display of Yellow Submarine and Beatles memorabilia.
