AMC Theatres is bringing Grease back to the big screen in honor of Olivia Newton-John. Ms. Newton-John, who passed away earlier this month, starred as Sandy in the blockbuster film version of the Broadway musical.
$1 from every ticket sold will support breast cancer research via the AMC Cares charitable fund.
To honor the late Olivia Newton-John: many of our U.S. theatres this weekend will show her classic 1978 hit movie Grease, again on the big screen. An inexpensive $5 admission price, and through our charity AMC Cares we will donate $1 per sold ticket to breast cancer research. pic.twitter.com/MQc28RwOPA
Grease was the highest grossing movie of 1978, earning $132.4 million throughout its initial run. "Hopelessly Devoted to You," written for Ms. Newton-John to sing in the film, earned an Oscar nomination and became one of Newton-John's standards.
Grease will be shown in 135 different AMC movie theatres beginning this weekend. To locate the nearest theatre to you, visit AMCTheatres.com.
