77. Grease Sing-a-long at Film Night in the Park

June 17, 2010

Grease is the word

You might recall last month when we announced a screening of Dolores Park Movie Night.

Well, if you missed that in hopes that perhaps there would be another opportunity to eat popcorn under the starlit night, you’re in luck.

This Saturday at dusk (8pm) begins the 2010 Film Night in the Park Outdoor Series and you know what? It’s a sing-a-long to boot!

GREASE is the word!

More from the Filmnight.org website:

The first 8-track soundtrack I ever owned, Grease holds a special nostalgic place for me. A frenzy of teenage sugar-high hormone driven choreography matched to a great score to boot, this rock-and-roll spin on the screen goes from poodle skirts and soda shops to black leather and pelvis-thrusting numbers, leaving you wanting to go out and purchase your own soundtrack to sing along and mimic to.

Grease is the all-time favorite and biggest grossing movie musical in history, spawning a generation that fell in love with the spark-flying duet of Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta. There’s a great number that alone makes the movie “Greased Lightning” that shows off Travolta’s singing talents and dance moves on testosterone overdrive.

The innocent girl next door, Australian lass Sandy (played by Newton-John) meets greaser loverboy Danny Zuko and the two fall into the perfect summer romance that must end as Sandy’s summer vacation ends. But their paths cross again, when she fatefully ends up at wacky Rydell High where Danny’s caught up in maintaining his coolness as the leader of the pack of greasers including sidekick Kenickie (Jeff Conway) who call themselves the T-Birds.

Sandy soon learns bad girls have more fun and get what they want. So she gets in with girl club Pink Ladies led by tough chick Rizzo (Stockard Channing) and beauty-school sweety Frenchy (Didi Conn) who transform her into a hot babe that’ll make Danny’s head spin. Meanwhile, Danny tries to win his summer sweetheart back by trying out for the track team and trading in his black leather for a varsity jacket [...]

The entire summer series is being presented by Pop Secret and SFNTF

You have two day to warm up your singing voice :)
