AMC Theatres will host screenings at 135 of its locations for a reduced rate of $5. A portion of ticket sales will go toward breast cancer research, company CEO Adam Aron tweeted.
The 1978 classic was once the highest-grossing musical film of all-time, eclipsing a record held by “The Sound of Music.” The movie’s record was trumped after the release of “Les Misérables” in 2012.
The film’s success led to its sequel, “Grease 2,” starring actors Maxwell Caulfield and Michelle Pfeiffer.
And there’s more “Grease” to come: A series based on the movie called “Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies” along with a prequel called “Summer Lovin’” are reportedly in production for streaming service Paramount+.
