The newly renovated Colonial Theatre in Bethlehem, NH, continues its 2018 Anniversary Film Series with the Beatle’s Yellow Submarine Friday, August 10 at 7:30 PM. At 50 years old this joyful, phantasmagoric blend of colorful animation and the music of the Beatles is still delightful family fare. This animated meandering journey filled with puns and dry British humor, where psychedelic music videos take precedent over any linear story. The swirling animation is a mixture of pop-culture images and modern artistic styles brought loosely together with a naïve antiwar message and some clever political commentary. The Blue Meanies take over Pepperland, draining it of all its color and music, firing anti-music missiles, bonking people with green apples, and turning the inhabitants to stone by way of the pointed finger of a giant white glove. As the only survivor, the Lord Admiral escapes in the yellow submarine and goes to London to enlist the help of the Beatles.
The evening’s festivities will include trivia contest, door prizes (original art work by Matt Bassett, Yellow Submarine movie poster, movie tickets and more) as well as a signature cocktail — a Blue Meanie, of course.
General Admission tickets for the 7:30 showtimes are $10, $8 for Colonial members including members of Catamount Arts and St. Kieran’s Community Center for the Arts, Gem Theater and the Loading Dock. Tickets are available at the door or on line at www.BethlehemColonial.org. Concessions include beer and wine, organic popcorn, fine chocolates coffee and tea.
