Grease

“I got chills… They’re mul-ti-ply-in’…”

It’s summer, which means we’re down for a little Summer Lovin’, Grease-style. And there’s no better way to experience your all-time favourite movie musical  – which has been rockin’ and rollin’ and what-not for over 40 years – than at the Rio Theatre, with a big-screen viewing of this 1978 classic musical.

Experience the friendships, romances and adventures of a group of high school kids in the 1950s. Welcome to the singing and dancing world of GREASE, the most successful movie musical of all time. A wholesome exchange student (Olivia Newton-John) and a leather-clad Danny (John Travolta) have a summer romance, but will it cross clique lines?

Please note: A hickey from Kinickie is like a Hallmark card.
