'Grease' is returning to theaters in recognition of Olivia Newton-John ...

Olivia Newton-John passed away this month, and her death was felt among many, especially among those of us who loved Grease, and it was a film that changed the game of musicals, and is still praised to this day. Now, AMC is showing Grease for the next weekend for a discounted rate, and part of the proceeds will go towards breast cancer research in her honor!

Adam Aron, the CEO of AMC, took to Twitter to announce the release, which is exciting for a number of reasons. One obviously being that part of it will go to a charity in memory of Newton-John, but it is also a film that many have flocked to years after it was released, which is a chance for fans to experience Grease in a different light.

Many of our U.S. theaters this weekend will show her iconic 1978 hit film Grease, once again on the big screen, according to Aron on Twitter. A low $5 admission price, and through our charity AMC Cares we will donate $1 per sold ticket to breast cancer research.

I hold her portrayal of Sandy in Grease very dear to my heart. I love to belt out "Hopelessly Devoted To You" whenever I'm sad, or just go to the theater and remember why I loved it in the first place. It is also a wonderful way to remember the joy that Newton-John gave us.

Newton-John was a star athlete, and many of us grew up admiring her work in not only Grease, but also films like Xanadu, and more. This is a great opportunity to honor her, and who wouldn't want to go see Grease on the big screen for the first time? It sounds like a wonderful experience!
