    1. To all of the late Baby Boomers, Grease is a classic. The soundtrack memorable. takes you back to when you were turning teenage in 1978.We know the songs and the lines. We loved the cast then and now. You watch Grease and you are transported to the happiest time of your life.The hit Broadway Show finally brought Onscreen,
    John Travolta scored a follow-up hit after his Oscar Nomination for Saturday Night Fever. He was familiar with Grease as he toured in productions with his sister Ellen.
    Who better than to be Rydell High’s Heartthrob , Danny Zuko. and cast as a Novice Actress, the Beautiful Australian Singer, Olivia Newton-John as Sandy Oleson the shy girl who captured T-Bird Leader Danny Zuko’s heart.

    It covered everything from coming of age. Teenage Romance Angst. High school Dances. Rivalry and Friendship, as in Always will be Together
    I never tire of this film. Friends and I recreated scenes and songs from the Film over the Years. and we Love it so.
    The Film that will remain in our Hearts Forever.
    I wish to see the 40th Anniversary Screening, like I did 40 years ago. For that day, I want to be 13 again & fall in love with John Travolta all over again.

    Hi, Annmarie! IMO “Grease” is a classic because of the music and all-star impeccable cast. Who doesn’t love singing “(You’re the) One that I Want” at the top of your lungs or “Hopelessly Devoted to You?” When I was little, I had a full time crush on John Travolta (Sweathogs, anyone?) and I dreamed of being the beautiful Olivia Newton John. I was a good girl who dreamed to be bad so “Sandy” was definitely an inspiration. (TMI, I know but fun facts!) Would love to see it again on the big screen…I saw it at the drive in, I believe. (Showing my age!) Good luck to me and everyone!

  3. Javier Valverde says:

    I haven’t seen “Grease” but I want to see it on the Big Screen because it furthered the career of John Travolta after the spectacular “Saturday Night Fever” that garnered him a Best Actor Oscar Nomination in 1977 and “Grease” introduced Olivia Newton-John to the entertainment world. Also it’s one of the rare musicals after the 1960s that made a lot of money at the box office.

  4. Diana says:

    Grease is a classic because it’s so memorable and an instant favorite that is loved by so many generations.

  5. Jlwthe2nd says:

    The music makes it a classic. So many songs that are easily sung along to and get stuck in your head! Everyone knows at least one song from Grease, even if they’ve never seen the movie! I love watching all these movies on the big screen! So happy fathom events brings them back again to enjoy in the theaters.

    Grease has become a classic movies to those of us who were around when the movie first came out. Most of us were teenagers ourselves so seeing it on the big screen with others who are your peers is a great experience. It takes us back to days of own youth when times were simpler, and the songs were abundant.
    We can sing along or sing alone. Most of us own a copy of the movie. But to really appreciate it, the movie should be seen in the big screen. It’s just as good today as it was 40 years ago. And I for one want to celebrate Grease, and I hope to celebrate another 40 years! Hopelessly devoted to…..”Grease”

  7. Kate Becton says:

    Grease is a classic because it’s instantly recognizable and has entertained every generation since it’s release. Because young and old alike can come together over this movie and enjoy themselves.

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Hi Kate, I can’t seem to find your tweet. Could you please confirm that you tweeted, or let me know if you don’t have a twitter account. Thanks!

  8. Mikary says:

    I saw “Grease” on the big screen when it first came out 40 years ago. I was on a cross-country bus tour for teenagers and going to a movie was our activity one evening. One of the other teens had the movie soundtrack on cassette, and it was played over and over and over so that we all knew all the words to all the songs. (I came to despise “Hopelessly Devoted to You” because one of the girls on the bus sang it constantly … and not very well!)

    “Grease” is a modern-day classic. The songs are memorable. The scenes are memorable. The experience of seeing it on the big screen is memorable!

  9. Tina Marie Jackson says:

    I didn’t get to see the premiere of Grease in the theater because I was only eleven years old when it debuted. I discovered it years later in television reruns. I fell in love with the storyline because it was set in the 50s era. I love the soundtrack and the clothes worn. The movie is a classic because it has a cult following and it closed out an era of music to pave the way for my generation’s 80s music. I would love to see it on the big screen since I didn’t get the opportunity when I was a child and I’d love to experience it with my family especially my daughter as we watch it together whenever possible. Danny, Sandy, Rizzo and all will live on forever in our hearts ♥️!

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Hi Tina, wonderful reason — but I cannot seem to find your tweet. Could you please confirm that you tweeted, or let me know if you don’t have a twitter account. Thanks!

    back in 2000 i was in a camp production of Grease and I played Patty Simcox. I was so excited for some reason and had so much fun! i knew every single song and was dancing the entire time!
    ive seen Grease so many times and its just one of those classic musical movies you can watch over and over again.
    the chemestry between john travolta and oliva newton john is pretty interesting. danny at one point flat out rejects her and later comes back a much stronger person. sadly, i wasnt born yet when the movie came out, but ive seen it quite a lot, and ive seen it on broadway and the live musical on tv. the music is great and the entire movie is awesome!

    I saw Grease on the big screen in 1978 with my girlfriends. I would love to see it on the big screen once again and relive those memories from that time. It will always be a classic to me. I love the opening animation and the soundtrack. The clothing and sets represent the era so well. I think Grease is definitely a classic that has attained cult status. It is pure entertainment!! It lets you escape life for a couple of hours and just have fun!

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      Hi Pamela, unfortunately the contest entry deadline was March 24 at 6pm. But I do hope that you enter one of our next fathom movie ticket giveaways. Lots of great movies now through the end of the year…

  12. Shelia Worthey says:

    Hi Annmarie! We didn’t get in on this one but I got the DVD for my son. And as is typical for him, he watched it over and over and wanted me to join him. So thanks for the reminder of a great show and some good times. (haha though I know that’s not necessarily in your hands =))
