A new restored version of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's Imagine is returning to theatres later this year.

According to a press release, Imagine, which Lennon and Ono directed, was restored frame-by-frame from the original reels, and the audio has been remixed by Paul Hicks. It guest stars Fred Astaire, Andy Warhol and Dick Cavett. The bonus footage includes Lennon and his band, George Harrison, Nicky Hopkins, Klaus Voorman and Alan White, recording his anti-Paul McCartney diatribe "How Do You Sleep?" and "Oh My Love." A special Dolby Atmos "raw studio" mix was created for these performances.

"The people who all worked on Imagine were Peace People, and it was so enlightening and exciting all the way through to be one of them," Ono said. "Remember, each one of us has the power to change the world."

Imagine is set to hit the big screen on September 17.
