Here you go, last line of the announcement of the Jackson film last 30 January:

Following the release of this new film, a restored version of the original Let It Be movie directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg will also be made available

And it's that "following" which makes me think it's most likely to appear as a bonus feature on the DVD/Blu-Ray of Jackson's.

Should be noted that unlike the Beatles other films this hasn't been officially released in decades and whilst bootleg copies do exist, the quality of the footage when released will be much improved compared to what circulates (unless Apple does something stupid like decide it should be in b&w to match 'AHDN ' or have the colours inverted as a bizarre nod to the 'LIBN' album cover). There have been numerous HQ clips in the Anthology and a handful of promos (plus a brief cameo in '8DAW') but that's it. To see the new film (which is also important, it's not just the 1969 movie getting put back out like with 'Help ' or 'AHDN (the latter got a cinema release in the 2000's?)) in the cinema in all it's glory will be a massive pull to the fans. Peter Jackson being involved will also get people intrigued and want to see it (let's hope his name isn't prominently included in the artwork, what they did with Ron Howard was just stupid but all that artwork looked a cheap cash-in).

Yoko also gave her latest 'Imagine ' film in the cinema for one night only so it is a thing.

 

For some reason I have this recall of seeing 'MMT' in the cinema when it got its DVD release, is that right? I clearly remember on the big screen the Major scene which I detest and just hating it even more. I know the BBC broadcast it at the time but that's not it.

  

Jumping back for a moment. 

’MMT’ was a limited release in certain cinemas in October 2012, which is a relief as it would have been disturbing having such a clear memory of seeing Paul and a cow on a big screen when it didn't happen.

I also still fear a revision of the times and it's spun into some great old jolly time with four mates having a great laugh whilst recording their massive selling #1 swansong album before slowly walking into the sunset with their wives with a single tear rolling down each of their faces. The film ending with John saying if Yoko gets the blame for them splitting, can she get the credit for all the great music that came afterwards.

I, too, fear for this. (Who knows? They could do it with deep-fake technology and all)

And also CGI.....like they plan to do with James Dean. Yeesh, imagine CGIed versions of John, Paul, George, and Ringo smiling down on us from the silver screen.

Maybe we can get these in order:

The album songs

The naked songs

The rooftop songs

and the outtakes

 

No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no.  Let's not sink to the level of the Paul mccartney archives and throw in previously released alternate or deluxe stuff just to add to the disc count

Reading all of your points, I definitely agree that Let it Be should be released in theaters (if only for a limited time). My question is now the same as @meanmistermustard's: Would they release both the Peter Jackson documentary with the original restored movie?

True but you get the limited release days like when 'MMT' or 'EDAW' were one night only.

There is no evidence that either Jackson's take on Let It Be , probably to be titled Get Back , or Giles' 50th Anniversary set will be delayed. As discussed in the thread about the companion book to the film, the suggestion it wouldn't come until the October is based on that book being published then, but the book could well be timed to coincide with any DVD/Blu-ray release of Jackson's film and Lindsay-Hogg's original.

It would make sense to have the cinema release in May, along with Giles' 50th Anniversary set, followed by a time with the film on streaming services before it's DVD/Blu-ray release in the run-up to Chrimble, with the book published to coincide.

I do not for a minute believe Giles won't start work on it until July. A lot of it would have needed to be done for Jackson's soundtrack, and the first clips from Jackson's film were shown at an event just a few weeks ago.

It would be utterly daft to ignore the 50th anniversary of the Beatles final album and film before they split to wait 5 months so they could sell potentially sell a few more copies in the run-up to Christmas. The fans will buy them regardless and Apple didn't hang about with 'Pepper' until November came along. Looking at the Apple's anniversary releases I don't think any have been delayed to accommodate; 'The White Album ' and 'Abbey Road ' both came out when they did because that's when they did originally. 

It would also be idiotic for Giles to sit around for months after the release had been announced to then get to work in July, two months after it would be expected to be out. 

I think Apple can be incredibly incompetent at times but even I wouldn't say they were that bad.

Peter Jackson’s film in cinemas on September 4, 2020.

If cinemas are open then, of course.

I can’t think of anything better than seeing new Beatles footage at the cinema. Really excited about this, and praying even harder the current panic gets resolved. ‘New’ John content! Seeing him in his natural habitat….bring it on!

So wait, I'm confused.  Is the Boxset delayed for the fall as well?

I think it depends on whether they can get it manufactured, @William Shears Campbell.

Myself, I think the film was delayed by coronavirus;  the day after Apple and Disney announced the opening date, giving it a day where it was the story, Disney started announcing the opening of films like the live-action Mulan were being postponed until September. I think they just knew when they announced the date we were entering a period of difficulty for films at the cinema.

It would have looked dreadful if they'd postponed it a day after announcing it.

I’m sure the virus played a strong part in that too.

I think they should delay the entire release. People are going to be struggling financially which will hit sales and now isn’t really the time to be thinking about the anniversary. Release it in September along with the film when hopefully  things are a little bit more normal.

How about every song listed on this website's "Get Back /Let It Be Sessions"?

Including:

-Annie

-Do The Bunny Hop

-Ach Lieber Du Augustin 

and more...

What do you think, @Joe ?

If this is anything like Abbey Road or the White Album , we should expect just a couple outtakes songs, such as a remaster of All Things Must Pass , Teddy Boy , and maybe even The Walk and Watching Rainbows. 

I personally was hoping for all the songs listed on Joe's Get Back /Let It Be songs list, but judging by the facts that (a) the mixing sessions are only scheduled for a month, so that barely gives enough time for a quarter of the songs listed and (b) It's not just the amount of time it takes, it's also the cost. ($$$,$$$,$$$) Plus, with the Coronavirus, I doubt the staff at EMI, Savile Row, and Twickenham can give it their all.

Let's hope for everything at the centennial, if we don't get anything.

Ron, I think they will just cancel the entire 50th. I mean, Yellow Submarine had its 50th celebration just by releasing the restored movie. The promised Jackson and Hogg movies WILL come out, but not in the foreseeable future.

The album is not being mixed until July, and that hardly gives enough time to remix it, let alone dig up those unheard recordings. 

Let's hope for something at the Centennial (If there is one)
