Back in theaters for a limited run is John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s 1972 feature film Imagine. Imagine includes previously unreleased cinema-exclusive bonus material, restored footage, remixed, remastered and an immersive Dolby Atmos soundtrack mix. 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."

One of the highlights of the Imagine film and accompanying doc, Gimme Some Truth, is seeing the ex-Beatles John Lennon and George Harrison interacting in the studio. Harrison felt that Lennon’s tumultuous childhood not only shaped Lennon’s life -- but the Beatles’ entire career: "John was, like, very tough. I mean, he had that ability to be gentle and soft and was lovely, but, y’know, he was acid, too. He gave that hard edge to the Beatles. He was an orphan, y’know? Well, he. . . his father left home and you’ve heard the songs, (sings) ‘Mother, you left me, but I didn’t leave you.’"

On October 5th, the Lennon estate will be pair the couple's 1972 Imagine film with the 2000 documentary, Gimme Some Truth: The Making of John Lennon’s 'Imagine' Album. The two films will be issued together on Blu-ray and DVD, with restored and enhanced 5.1 surround sound.
