This July will mark the 50th anniversary of the classic animated Beatles film Yellow Submarine, and in celebration of the milestone, a restored version the movie will be heading to cinemas in North America, the U.K. and Ireland this summer.

Screenings in the U.K. and Ireland will take place at a variety of theaters on July 8, while details about when and where Yellow Submarine will be shown in the U.S. and Canada will be announced soon. The updated version of the movie boasts 4K digital resolution and 5.1 stereo surround-sound audio.

Inspired by the 1966 Beatles tune of the same name, Yellow Submarine features animated likenesses of the Fab Four, who take a surreal, psychedelic journey beneath the sea as they try to help bring music and love back to the people of Pepperland after an attack by the evil Blue Meanies and their henchmen.

The movie features a variety of memorable Beatles songs, including the title tune, “Eleanor Rigby,” “When I’m Sixty-Four,” “Nowhere Man,” “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “All You Need Is Love.”

Tickets for the U.K. and Ireland screenings go on sale April 17.Stay tuned for details about the North American screenings.
