John Lennon: Imagine film to screen in cinemas this fall

A restored version of John Lennon’s 1972 film, “Imagine”, will be screened in cinemas worldwide starting September 17.

The project – which documents the making of the former Beatle’s 1971 song and album of the same name – has been remastered frame-by-frame from the original film negative and remixed from the original audio multi-tracks in Dolby Atmos and 7.1 Surround Sound,

“Imagine” sees Lennon and Yoko Ono alongside guests including George Harrison, Fred Astaire, Jack Nicholson, Andy Warhol, Dick Cavett, and many more.

The film is accompanied by 15 minutes of never-before-seen extras, including studio footage of John and his band – including Harrison, Nicky Hopkins from the Rolling Stones, Alan White from Yes, and Klaus Voormann – performing “How Do You Sleep?” and “Oh My Love.”

The best-selling single of Lennon’s solo career, “Imagine” reached No. 3 on the US Billboard 200 upon its original release while the album topped the charts around the world.

The U.S. Postal Service is honoring Lennon with a new commemorative Forever Stamp on September 7.

Featuring a 1974 image of the rocker by photographer Bob Gruen for Lennon’s “Walls And Bridges” album, the stamp pane resembles a vintage 45-rpm record sleeve and features Lennon at his white piano on the reverse side.

Lennon died at the age of 40 after he was shot in front of his New York City home in December of 1980.
