True Grease aficionados, James and Amy. (07/21/2008)
Last year, we made it to Singin' in the Rain and Xanadu (sadly, we missed West Side Story and Moulin Rouge!). Although we wanted to attend all of the movies they selected this year (Easter Parade, Grease, The Muppet Movie and the 2007 version of Hairspray), if there was one that we absolutely could not miss, it was Grease.
Tim ready to be converted. (07/21/2008)
Forget the fact that Grease is one of my favorite movies of all time (and one of Amy's for that matter). What was important was that we converted Tim. For years, he has always said he hated Grease because his sister loved it so much and would play it over and over and over (and rightly so). This was our chance to lure Tim to the Grease side of The Force.
The crowd at Grease. (07/21/2008)
I don't know how successful we were in converting Tim, but he did enjoy the night. Seeing it on the big screen again was fun, especially outdoors with a bunch of other Grease fans (some of whom wore 1950s era costumes). The only downside for me was that no one was singing along with the songs. I say next year, make it a sing-along version!
