Restored and remixed with additional cinema-only tracks
Music fans will be celebrating this September, as John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s Imagine hits the big screen. Including previously unreleased cinema-exclusive bonus material, restored footage, remixed, remastered and immersive Dolby Atmos soundtrack mix, it’s a unique opportunity to witness Imagine like you’ve never seen or heard it before!
Imagine is a cinematic collage of color, sound, dream and reality. Produced and directed by John and Yoko, who, with numerous guest stars including George Harrison, Fred Astaire, Andy Warhol, Dick Cavett, Jack Palance and Jonas Mekas, create a world of imagination as rich and moving as the music that accompanies it.
The ground-breaking music film features a different visual treatment for every song, and follows John and Yoko during the recording sessions for Imagine in both the UK and New York, as they co-produced the record with Phil Spector.
Imagine has been restored frame-by-frame, from the original reels with the audio remix by triple GRAMMY Award-winning engineer, Paul Hicks. It is accompanied by 15 minutes of never-before-seen extras including studio footage of John and his band (including George Harrison, Nicky Hopkins from the Rolling Stones, Alan White from Yes and Klaus Voormann) performing “How Do You Sleep?” and “Oh My Love” in a specially created Dolby Atmos surround sound “raw studio” mix that puts you in the center of the recording studio while the band play live.
“The people who all worked on Imagine were Peace People and it was so enlightening and exciting all the way through to be one of them,” Ono says in a statement. “Remember, each one of us has the power to change the world.”
Screenings start September 17th and with showtimes available here. New showings added daily and are distributed by Eagle Rock Entertainment.
