Magical Mystery Tour—conceived and directed by The Beatles themselves—is a surreal take on the British tradition of a coach trip to the seaside, featuring the band members along with an eccentric cast of characters. The film was originally broadcast in the UK in 1967. While the music, featuring classic tracks like “Magical Mystery Tour,” “The Fool on the Hill,” and “I Am the Walrus,” was rapturously received, the movie was poorly reviewed by TV critics who expected something lighter and more in the style of of A Hard Day’s Night. As a result, the film never aired in the US and was not widely distributed. But now, 45 years on, the rarely seen classic film has been fully restored and is being presented in its original glory for the first time.
