Grease Tribute Shows at Movie Theaters by Olivia Newton-John
Olivia Newton-death Johns was saddened by the tragedy this month, but those who attended Grease were the most affected. The 1978 film, which also starred John Travolta as Danny Zuko, is still considered a cinematic masterpiece. She also passed away from breast cancer, which she first diagnosed with in 1992, and so in her memory, AMC will screen Grease this weekend for a reduced price, with a portion of the profits going to breast cancer research.
AMC CEO Adam Aron announced the release on Twitter for several reasons, including the fact that some of the proceeds will benefit a charity established under the Newton-John name. The film continues to attract audiences long after its first theatrical run. For a noble purpose that hopefully will honor the Newton-John legacy, fans will get to experience Grease like never before.
Grease will be presented in cinemas across the United States this weekend, according to Aron on Twitter, and is affordable at only $5 per person, with AMC Cares contributing $1 to breast cancer research.
