Despite being considered a classic musical, Grease is quite possibly one of the worst films ever made. Luckily, the wonderful people at Cleveland Cinemas recognize the sheer cult brilliance of the film's successor and are screening the film on the big screen, just as God intended.

While the first Grease focused on romanticizing the idea that women need to change everything about themselves or they'll never be good enough to be loved by John Travolta, Grease 2 is a progressive and sex-positive jamboree featuring Michelle Pfieffer as an actual national treasure.

When Sandy from the first film's cousin Michael (played by Empire Records' Rex Manning himself, Maxwell Caulfield) arrives at Rydell High, he is immediately smitten by Pfieffer's devil may care attitude and ferocious independence. He takes it upon himself to learn how to ride a motorcycle and get in touch with his "tougher" side in an attempt to impress the girl of his dreams. No one is telling him to get this makeover, he's doing it for himself and hoping Stephanie falls in love with the new him as much as he has.

With catchy tunes like "Score Tonight," "Girl For All Seasons," "Prowlin," and the bad-bitch anthem "Cool Rider," Grease 2 is a must-see for fans of cult cinema and rock 'n roll musicals.

Grease 2 plays The Capitol Theatre at 7 pm on Wednesday, April 25th. Tickets are available by clicking here.
