Have you ever wanted to go to the movie theater and sing all of the songs from "Grease" with an entire audience of fellow fans? Now you can join Sandy, Danny, the T Birds and the Pink Ladies at the "Grease Sing-A-Long" movie experience.
A newly restored version of the film will hit theaters for a two week special engagement beginning on July 8. Lyrics to all of the hit songs will scroll across the bottom of the screen karaoke style to encourage audiences to join in and sing with the cast.
Right now it's set for a limited engagement in New York, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and several other big cities, but fans can Demand it! at the Grease website to request a showing in their town. Denver is currently number 22 on the 40 city list of cities in terms of requests.
Paramount Pictures owns "Grease," and tried a similar marketing campaign last year for the movie "Paranormal Activity," asking interested audiences to demand a showing. The movie went on to make $200 million worldwide at the box office.
"Grease," which was originally released in 1978, is the highest grossing musical of all time. Over the years the film has been re-released on several occasions, adding to the totals and introducing the film to a whole new audience. This time around "Grease" is being advertised as the original "High School Musical."
