The classic film Grease returns to the big screen at 2pm on Sunday 8 February at the Benalla Performing Arts & Convention Centre as part of a fabulous fifties February lineup. The event includes an audience sing-along, dressing up in fifties style, and a classic car display.
The screening of the 1978 hit is part of BPACC’s new Sunday Sessions, which features retro movies and digital theatre.
Grease, the classic movie about teen love set in the 50s and starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John is the first of the retro season, screening on Sunday 8 February.
There will also be a display by Benalla's Rose City Rock 'n' Roll Club dancers, Hot Rods and classic cars, and the audience is invited to dress up in their favourite 50s outfit to win prizes.“This film has been recognized as having timeless appeal,” said BPACC’s Artistic Director Matt Scholten.
“We invite you slick back your hair or don your Pink Lady jacket. This looks certain to be the most fun you’ll have at the movies for a long time.”
The Fifties February theme will continue on Saturday 21 February with The Songs That Made Memphis by Sun Rising, a tribute to early rock and roll legends including Ike Turner, BB King, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison.
Other movies in the 2015 Retro season include the The Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, North by Northwest, Singin’ in the Rain, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Sound of Music, Muriel’s Wedding and Dirty Dancing.
