Just in time for Valentine’s day, Grease is still the word as the classic John Travolta musical returns to Cineworld. And this time – ‘Just follow the bouncing ball’ as we present the Sing-A-Long version everyone is crazy about. It’s the summer of 1958 in sunny California, where local greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta) meets and falls in love with sweetly innocent Sandy Olsen (Olivia Newton-John). Thinking she’s gone home after their holiday romance, Danny returns to Rydell High School, where he’s the swaggering leader of the T-Birds. But when Sandy also enrolls in Rydell High, she joins the Pink Ladies led by local bad girl Betty Rizzo (Stockard Channing). Adapted from the long running stage musical, ‘Grease’ cemented the charismatic young John Travolta’s superstar status after ‘Saturday Night Fever’ and also turned Olivia Newton-John into a ’70s screen icon. It boasts a fabulous, multi-million-selling soundtrack, including two chart-topping duets: ‘You’re the One That I Want’ and ‘Summer Nights’. Original UK release date 14 September 1978.
