AMC Theatres is bringing Grease back to the big screen in honor of Olivia Newton-John. Ms. Newton-John, who passed away earlier this month, starred as Sandy in the blockbuster film version of the Broadway musical.

$1 from every ticket sold will support breast cancer research via the AMC Cares charitable fund.

Grease was the highest grossing movie of 1978, earning $132.4 million throughout its initial run. "Hopelessly Devoted to You," written for Ms. Newton-John to sing in the film, earned an Oscar nomination and became one of Newton-John's standards.

Grease will be shown in 135 different AMC movie theatres beginning this weekend. To locate the nearest theatre to you, visit AMCTheatres.com.
