Backyard Cinema Main Stage: Grease
Sing-a-long to some of the most memorable musical numbers to grace the big screen
Backyard Cinema have teamed up with Camden Market to bring you their very own outdoor summer film festival set across two screens. Sink into giant beanbags and lounge on deckchairs as you enjoy a selection of new releases, cult favourites and all-time classics. Based in Camden Lock Place, the main stage is the hub of entertainment before the screening serving fresh burgers, craft beer, cocktails and a decent helping of live DJs. Tonight’s offering on the huge screen is the 1978 musical hit, Grease. Drag-race yourself into '50s high school gang culture (which was apparently full of cheery musical number) and join good-girl Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) and greaser Danny (John Travolta) in their whirlwind romance. This is the perfect opportunity to sing along to those timeless tunes. "The message is: burn rubber, have sex, strut about like a chicken. It's one that's hard to resist." – The Guardian "What makes it work is its youthful vitality, tremendous energy and imagination." – Hollywood Reporter Certificate: PG. Runtime: 1 hour 46 minutes.
"Clunky kitsch quality…makes Grease such a perpetual joy."
