New Release: LennonNYC DVD

A&E Home Entertainment released the documentary LennonNYC on DVD on Nov. 23, 2010, the day after the movie premiered on PBS’s American Masters series. The DVD carries a suggested retail price of $24.95, and a Blu-ray priced at $34.95 followed on Jan. 11, 2011.

LennonNYC examines the period in the 1970s when John Lennon, his wife Yoko One and their son Sean lived in New York City.

The film follows John and Yoko following the breakup of the Beatles when, in 1971, they moved to Manhattan, where Lennon sought to escape the mayhem of the Beatles era and focus on his family and private life. At the same time, he created some of the most acclaimed songs and albums of his career.

He also remained highly active in the anti-war movement, as well as numerous other progressive political causes, and, along with Ono, became beloved fixtures in neighborhood restaurants, at Central Park, at sports events and at political demonstrations.

Produced with exclusive cooperation from Yoko Ono, LennonNYC offers access to never-before-released material from the Lennon archives, conversations with Lennon’s closest confidants (among them, Elton John and David Geffen), and a slew of rare recordings of Lennon’s solo hits, including “Mind Games,” “Whatever Gets You Through the Night,” and “Imagine.”
