If you’ve got chills and they’re multiplying, then get yourself down to this fabulous sing-a-long screening of Grease.
Cinema Akil at Dubai’s Alserkal Avenue is reliving the legendary high school drama featuring Danny Zuko (John Travolta) and Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John).
The movie features hits including Greased Lightning, Summer Nights and Beauty School Dropout and is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Tickets for the special screenings will set you back Dhs52.50, with showings on Wednesday November 7 and Saturday November 10.
Doors will open at 7.30pm for the Wednesday event and at 5pm on Saturday. The arts venue’s first singalong kicks off with a new print with restored colour, sound and resolution.
Grease is set in summer in the 1950s, where high school gang leader Danny Zuko has a whirlwind romance with young Australian ingénue Sandy Olson.
The two fall in love, but when the holiday ends they have to split up, having first sworn eternal love.
As it turns out, Sandy attends the same high school as Danny, which threatens their relationship and collide with the boy’s reputation as a ladies’ man and The Pink Ladies’ notoriety.
It’s going to be a night of brilliant fun, so get that hair slick at the ready and prepare for those summer… nights.
