Grease Sing-Along

When: Sun., Aug. 16, 2 & 7 p.m. and Wed., Aug. 19, 2 & 7 p.m. 2015

The film adaptation of the musical Grease bowdlerized the original's racy songs and then compounded that error in judgment by throwing in a disco theme song written by Barry Gibb. However, all those sins are forgiven (or at least forgotten) when Teen Angel (Frankie Avalon) shows up to sing "Beauty School Dropout." Turner Classic Movies challenges you to give the iconic song a shot at a screening of Grease Sing-Along. The film screens locally at 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday and Wednesday (August 16 and 19) at Wehrenberg Des Peres 14 Cine (12701 Manchester Road, Des Peres; www.fathomevents.com). Tickets are $12.50.
