“Grease is the word” this Friday in Astoria.

On Friday, June 15, the Central Astoria Local Development Coalition (LDC) will host its first-ever drive-in movie night in the Astoria Park Parking Lot located at Hoyt Avenue and 19th Street.

Starting at 8:30 p.m., the Central Astoria LDC will show the movie musical “Grease,” which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. The film was originally released on June 16, 1978, and follows the love story of greaser Danny Zuko and Australian exchange student Sandy Olsson.

The event was made possible in part by New York State Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas in partnership with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for this free event and the movie will start promptly at 8:30 p.m. Space is on a first-come, first-served basis, so plan to arrive early to secure a spot. Seating will be provided for those without cars.
