John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ Film Returning to Theaters With Bonus Features
The film Imagine, which John Lennon and Yoko Ono codirected and costarred in, will return to theaters this fall with extra footage. The couple made the film, not to be confused with the similarly titled 1988 film, in 1971 at their home in Ascot, England and released it the following year. It features pre-MTV–era music videos made from amateur footage for the entire track list from Lennon’s Imagine LP along with a few songs from Ono’s Fly. The film also includes segues of everything from the Beatle on a toilet to scenes of the couple entering a room to regal horns.
New Yorkers walking past City Hall in Manhattan this morning were treated to an unusual sight: former Beatles drummer and newly minted knight Ringo Starr lying in an oversize bed with John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, and 'the Dude' from The Big Lebowski.
The stunt was part of a Beatles-themed 'bed-in,' inspired by Ono and Lennon's famed Vietnam War protests in 1969, to support New York City public schools.

Private Plane Carrying Post Malone Making Emergency Landing After Blowing Out Tires: Report
Post Malone's Private Plane Safely Makes Emergency Landing After Blowing Out TiresThe Gulfstream Aerospace GLF-4 luxury jet took off on Tuesday from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey around 10:50 a.m., the FAA confirmed Tuesday. Soon after, the pilot realized the tires had blown and began circling the airport.
The 'bed-in' was part of the fifth annual 'Come Together: NYC' event, which marked the return of the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus: a mobile production studio that 'provides hands-on creative experiences to students of all ages,' including, audio, video, digital media and broadcast
This year’s theme of 'Come Together: NYC' was 'activism.' Students from various schools gathered outside City Hall carrying signs saying 'Bed Peace,' 'Hair Peace' and 'Imagine Peace,' and sang 'Give Peace A Chance.'
The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus rolled out in 1998 with the intention of continuing Lennon's legacy of promoting unity through art.
The legendary singer and songwriter was assassinated in Manhattan in 1980.
EXCLUSIVE: Imagine! John Lennon's killer denied parole a 10th time; will remain in prison at least another two years
ALBANY – In a case of Instant Karma, John Lennon’s killer on Thursday was denied parole for a 10th time, the Daily News has learned. Mark David Chapman was told the news after appearing before a three-member parole panel this week, a source told The News. Chapman will be watching the wheels from behind bars for at least another two years, when he is next eligible for parole. The source did not know the reason for the denial.But in the past, the Parole Board — even while citing Chapman's clean prison record since 1994 — has routinely said that releasing him would "undermine respect for the law."Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono declined comment through her lawyer, Jonas Herbsman.
'It's an incredible day for me to finally go to bed with Yoko,' joked Starr.
Ono, laying beside her late husband's bandmate, smiled and said: 'I think that maybe John is hearing us. Give peace a chance... just remember that we are creating the world.'
Ono and Starr have been friends for many years. When the renowned musician was awarded a knighthood by Queen Elizabeth II for his 'services to music' earlier this year, Lennon's widow sent out a warm tweet congratulating him and professing her love for him
After hearing from the famous trio, a band performed Lennon's 'Imagine,' during which Mayor de Blasio flashed the peace sign while holding Ono's hand.
Bridges joined the festivities in his capacity as a national spokesman of the non-profit group Share Our strength to promote the childhood nutrition program No Kid Hungry.
