Released in 1967, "Magical Mystery Tour" was arguably ahead of its time, with a mostly improvised and loosely plotted script based around a surreal dreamlike coach trip to an unknown destination.
The film is a showcase for six classic tracks including like “I Am the Walrus,” “The Fool on the Hill” and “Your Mother Should Know” and features John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as themselves.
Now fully restored and presented properly for the first time, the film emerges from the shadows and onto the screen.
