East Hartford - posted Jul, 31 2013
It’s time to don the leather jackets and practice the hand jive as Goodwin College gets ready to bring "Grease" and a nostalgic drive-in experience to campus. On Friday, Aug. 2, Goodwin will continue its Movies Under the Stars series with a screening of "Grease." The community is invited as the campus is transformed into Rydell High, complete with costume contests with prizes for the best in T-Birds and Pink Ladies. The movie will begin airing at 8:30 p.m. on a 40-foot screen. As a drive-in, the audio will be broadcast directly through car radios, allowing guests to enjoy the film without falling prey to mosquitoes. There’s an added twist to the screening. The reel is a sing-along edition, with song lyrics will appear on screen during musical numbers. Attendees are welcome to belt out their favorite selections, from “Summer Nights” to “You’re the One that I Want.” There is no charge to attend the movie. Refreshments will be on sale during the viewing, which will take place in the main Goodwin College parking lot. Visitors should route to 211 Riverside Drive in East Hartford. Prizes for best costumes include gift certificates to area restaurants. Vintage cars from the 1950s will also be on hand for the evening. For more information, log onto www.goodwin.edu.
