Malibu Film Society to Screen ‘Yellow Submarine’

Yellow Submarine

The Malibu Film Society will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of “Yellow Submarine,” a film based on the Beatles hit song, with a screening on Sunday, July 8.

Theaters around the world will be showing the 1968 animated film. Malibuites will be able to join in on the celebration at the Malibu Screening Room. There will be a free wine reception prior to the screening.

Beatles experts Brooke Halpin and Ivor Davis will be joining the festivities, signing copies of their books prior to introducing the screening around 8 p.m.

Halpin is the producer and host of the weekly radio show “Come Together with the Beatles” on 99.1 KBUU and Wrock Radio. He published “Experiencing the Beatles—A Listener’s Companion,” which focuses on the British band’s U.S.-released songs and “in-depth evolution of their songwriting.”

Ivor Davis is the author-journalist behind “The Beatles and Me On Tour.” Davis, a reporter for the London Daily Express at the time, writes about the time he hung out with the Beatles for 34 days in the summer of 1964.

Admission to the event is free for MFS members. Discounted tickets are available for members’ guests. Nonmembers are also welcome to join the celebration. RSVPs are required and can be made at

The screening will take place at the Malibu Screening Room, located at the Malibu Jewish Center and Synagogue (24855 Pacific Coast Highway).
