The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to join theaters around the world to present a one-night only world encore of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “Imagine” on Monday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Music fans will be celebrating as John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s “Imagine” hits the big screen. Including previously unreleased cinema-exclusive bonus material, restored footage, remixed, remastered and immersive soundtrack mix, it is 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 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. Remember, each one of us has the power to change the world.” — Yoko Ono
“Imagine” will show at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Monday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m.
