Fans Across the U.S. ‘Demand’ Grease: Sing-a-Long

June 11, 2010

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 11 /PRNewswire/ –

                   Fans across the country are "demanding" GREASE: SING-
    WHO:           A-LONG come to their hometowns.

                   Paramount's Insurge Pictures will expand the
                   digitally re-mastered film to 5 additional cities
                   across the country beginning Thursday, July 15th for
                   an exclusive engagement. In addition, Paramount will
    WHAT:          simultaneously launch Demand it!(R) Canada.

                   The studio will announce the cities with the highest
    WHEN:          "demand" by noon PDT on Monday, June 14th.

                   The announcement comes on the heels of Ocala, FL,
                   John Travolta's hometown, "demanding" to be among
                   the first select cities to open the digitally re-
                   mastered, sing-a-long version of "Grease."
                   Paramount selected Ocala solely based on the results
                   of an online poll in which fans across the country
                   could "demand" the musical open in their city. Out
                   of more than 1,700 cities lobbying for the film,
                   Ocala, a town of only 53,000, hit No. 1 on the poll
    WHY:           in record time.

                   Said Rob Moore, Vice Chairman of Paramount Pictures:
                   "As we saw with 'Paranormal Activity,' with the
                   right amount of fan fever, even the smallest towns
                   can win the right to have the film play in their
                   town via the Demand it! (R) Program. We are excited to
                   see which 5 cities top the poll next week."

                   GREASE: SING-A-LONG will begin playing on Thursday,
                   July 8th in exclusive showings in 12 markets across
                   the country. Tickets for these first cities are
                   quickly selling out, including New York, NY (AMC
                   Village); Los Angeles, CA (AMC Century City);
                   Chicago, IL (AMC River East); San Francisco, CA (AMC
