(WENN) -- John Lennon and Yoko Ono's "Imagine" movie has been lovingly restored for a new cinema release featuring bonus material and a new soundtrack.

The film, produced and directed by John and Yoko, and featuring guest stars George Harrison, Fred Astaire, Andy Warhol, and Jack Palance, chronicles the recording sessions for Lennon's Imagine album with now-disgraced record producer Phil Spector.

"Imagine has been restored frame-by-frame, from the original reels with the audio remix by triple Grammy Award-winning engineer, Paul Hicks," a new press release reads. "It is accompanied by 15 minutes of never-before-seen extras, including studio footage of John and his band (including George Harrison, Nicky Hopkins from the Rolling Stones, Alan White from Yes and Klaus Voormann) performing How Do You Sleep? and Oh My Love in a specially created Dolby Atmos surround sound raw studio mix that puts you in the center of the recording studio while the band play live."

The newly-restored film will be released to select cinemas next month.
