Celebrate the 45th anniversary of the musical romantic comedy GREASE, showing in 4K from a recent 4K restoration with the original 1978 70mm audio mix.
“Uh, I’m not very hungry; just gimme a double Polar Burger wit’ everything and a cherry soda wit’ chocolate ice cream.”
Sandy, a wholesome exchange student has a summer romance with Danny Zuko, head of the T-Bird gang, and think they’ll never see each other again. But when Sandy and her parents move from Australia to America, they both end up at the same school. Will their romance be able to survive the high school cliques?
An energetic and hilarious musical with infectiously catchy songs, Grease has stood the test of time. Released in the United States in 1978 by Paramount Pictures. The film was successful both critically and commercially, becoming the highest-grossing musical film at the time. Its soundtrack album ended 1978 as the second-best-selling album of the year in the United States, only behind the soundtrack of the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever. In 2020, Grease was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

The aim of the Amity Cinema is to bring people together to appreciate great films on a big screen, as they should be seen. Please do not treat the Amity like a traditional cinema, don’t be concerned about being 100% silent, don’t be worried about getting up to go to the bar or use the bathroom at any point, you’re sat in a bar that serves excellent beer just behind your seats, feel absolutely free to quote along, cheer, cry, despair, warn the characters about what’s behind them etc. You also don’t need to leave the room as soon as the credits roll, you are welcome to stay and have a few drinks and discuss the film or just continue enjoying your evening.
I want to bring people together to have a good time. I want us to have our very own cinema in the heart of Holmfirth.
