On this day, The Beatles, minus John Lennon, attended a press preview of their forthcoming animated movie, “Yellow Submarine“. The film screening and press reception took place at the 102-seat theatre named Bowater House Cinema in Knightsbridge, London.

It was the first time any of The Beatles saw the completed film. After the screening, they gave interviews and were photographed, posing with a cardboard cutout of John Lennon’s cartoon incarnation, as well as standing next to a life-sized Blue Meanie.

The world premiere of “Yellow Submarinetook place nine days later at the London Pavilion on Piccadilly Circus, London.
