Movie by Moonlight – Grease

Calling all T-Birds and Pink Ladies!  The most popular musical film of them all, “Grease” returns to the big screen this summer for the RUH The Forever Friends Appeal annual Movie by Moonlight in the Royal Victoria Park, Bath.

Starring the legendary John Travolta and Olivia Newton John as Danny and Sandy, Grease changed the face of musical cinema.  Come and sing along with hits such as “Summer Nights”, “You’re The One That I Want” and “Greased Lightening” – it is quite simply the perfect film for a night of cinema under the stars!

The film starts at 8.30pm approximately (or when it gets dark), but make sure to arrive early to avoid disappointment. Please feel free to bring along a picnic although no glass or BBQs will be allowed on site. Warm clothes and a torch recommended!

This is a free event, although there will be a collection to help raise funds towards building a new Cancer Centre at the RUH. Please feel free to dress up on the night (you know you want to!), and obviously a prize will be given to the best dressed!

Any further details and site map will be uploaded to their website in due course. The original 1978 trailer is on there too!

    Elsa lovely host but found the event itself disappointing... Very restrained atmosphere for such a fun , camp film!!

      Were you sat with us? There were people elsewhere singing and clapping with the songs.

      We were sat near the heart van- perhaps I should have been elsewhere ! Hmmmm

    Hi,
    I only joined Meetup yesterday, and haven't signed up to go to anything yet with any of my groups. I really want to go to this, and am hoping to go with a couple of my friends. But nothing has been confirmed yet! If I know where you are I would like to come and say hello. I see that you will have signs up... do you have any idea whereabouts in the park you will be roughly?
    Looking forward to meeting new people :)
    Becky

    • Elsa

      Hi Becky, everyone's first Meetup is daunting but we've all been there and everyone is very friendly. If you have friends in tow then you've nothing to lose and if they can't make it then why not take the plunge and come anyway :-) If you RSVP I will send you my number to make it easier to find us if not then look out for the signs. It's good etiquette to RSVP if you are coming though ;-) Elsa

      1 · August 31, 2014

    • Becky S.

      Hi Elsa, thank you. I have RSVPd, I will definitely be there and come and find you, with friends or without! DPD have just brought the Pink Ladies jacket I ordered, so I hope to meet up with someone! :)

    August 30, 2014

    • Elsa

      Sorry to hear that Becky. Will keep my fingers crossed you can make it. I'm sure the film would be good medicine.

      1 · August 31, 2014

    • Becky

      Hi Elsa, thank you. Sadly I do not think I will make it so will my change my rsvp. I hope you all have a brilliant time and have a boogie for me :-)

  • Elsa

    For those of you deliberating on your food options for this evening... There will be Burgers, chips, popcorn, candy floss and hot & cold drinks (plus sweets and things) available to buy. Picnics are welcome, but no glass bottles or glasses!

    1 · August 31, 2014

  • Andrew C.

    I'll be able to come, but won't be able to arrive till just after 8 p.m. If those of you who are coming could look out for me and attract my attention, I would be grateful, since there's bound to be a lot of people there.

    August 30, 2014

  • Elsa

    Hi All, Just sent an email with my mobile number, in case you need it. Give this comment a "Like" if you're planning to come in (entirely optional) fancy dress! Elsa

  • Rani

    Hey Guys - will this event definitely go ahead come rain or shine? I've just booked my accommodation for the night as I'm travelling from Devon.

    August 26, 2014

    • Becky

      Hi Rani, thank you for your email. I think a few people may be eating beforehand. I will need to decide on the day if I am going as I have a bad foot so it depends on the pain levels as it will be standing at the park. I have not booked a restaurant or anything as yet, as its Sunday and quite early in the evening I do not think it will be a problem getting a table. If I do not make it, which will be a shame, you can contact others who may wish to eat and arrange something, Hope all is well with you. Becky :-)

      August 27, 2014

    • Elsa

      Hi Becky. Just to clarify this is not a standing event. You can bring blankets and chairs to sit on - see photos of last year on the website mentioned in the main text. Hope that means you can make it.

    August 25, 2014

    • Elsa

      There is on road parking all around the park, some of which is free but I expected it will be busy. Charlotte Street is free after 8pm.
