Free admission

Get out your leather jackets and hoop skirts, Grease is coming to Midwood Park for the September Movie Night in the Park. Cool treats from Rita’s Italian Ice with free popcorn from the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association. A special outdoor screening of Grease, the 1978 American musical romantic comedy film based on the 1971 musical of the same name.

Written by Bronte Woodard and directed by Randal Kleiser in his theatrical feature film debut, the film depicts the lives of two high school seniors: a bad boy (played by John Travolta) and a good girl (played by Olivia Newton-John) in the late 1950’s. Grease was successful both critically and commercially. Its soundtrack album ended 1978 as the second-best selling album of the year in the United States, behind the soundtrack of the 1977 blockbuster Saturday Night Fever, and earned the film its lone Oscar nomination for “Hopelessly Devoted to You” (which lost the Academy Award for Best Original Song to Donna Summer’s “Last Dance” from Thank God It’s Friday at the 51st Academy Awards). – Wikipedia
