'The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour

Arena presents the greatest Beatles story never told, a blockbuster double-bill.

Fully restored to the highest technical standard with a remixed soundtrack, Magical Mystery Tour comes out of the shadows and onto the screen.

By the end of 1967, The Beatles had achieved a creativity unprecedented in popular music. Their triumphant summer release, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, was both avant garde and an instant hit. It went straight to No.1 in June and remained there for the rest of the year.

They immersed themselves in the fiercely radical art of the new counterculture and decided to make a film on their own terms, not as pop stars but as artists.
