Transferring its setting from Chicago to sunny California, and adding a dash of disco to the ersatz ‘50s score, producer Allan Carr and director Randal Kleiser turned this long–running Broadway smash into the biggest blockbuster of 1978. 1950s teens Danny (John Travolta) and Australian transfer Sandy (Olivia Newton–John) spend their “Summer Nights&rsdquo; falling in love, but once fall comes, it’s back to Rydell High and its cliques. GREASE became the highest–grossing film of 1978, the highest–grossing movie musical ever, and the third most popular film of the new blockbuster ‘70s. A newly restored copy of the film brings the T–Birds and Pink Ladies back to the big screen as a sing–a–long on Honolulu’s biggest movie screen TITAN XC.
Bronte Woodard, Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey (musical)
John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing
