n celebration of its 50th anniversary, a newly restored 4K version of the animated Beatles film “Yellow Submarine” is returning to theaters in select cities this week (with 5.1 surround sound for extra psychedelic effect). And while the film was famously born out of a contractual obligation, some distance shows that it is one of the better examples of the Beatles on film (even if John, Paul, George and Ringo aren’t actually in the film until the last few minutes — more on that later.)
If you can’t catch it in theaters (see the official Yellow Submarine website for information on screenings and tickets), we’ve provided details below on where to stream it from home. But why stop there? The Fab Four’s other major film appearances are streaming, too, along with a few interesting cinematic vehicles for their music that came after they split. Read on to learn where to find them, ranked in order from best to most ridiculous — with the understanding that ridiculous is not necessarily a bad thing.
