GREASE IS THE WORD As Didi Conn Launches FRENCHY’S BEDROOM POP-UP To Mark The 40th Anniversary With NOW TV
Last night Didi Conn, Frenchy from Grease, launched a NOW TV pop-up screening experience on Bateman Street, Soho to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the hit movie.
The event is set to give fans who won tickets to the event through Eventbrite, the chance to step back in time to the fabulous fifties and immerse themselves in an exact replica of Frenchy’s bedroom and the iconic sleepover scene from the film. From retro sweets to a flirty fifties props including the iconic Pink Ladies jackets, every attendee will be given a chance to have their very own ‘look at me I’m Sandra Dee’ moment. Fans can also celebrate the anniversary themselves and stream the film on NOW TV with a Sky Cinema Pass.
Didi Conn said “I’m so excited to be here, it’s like stepping back into my bedroom on set 40 years ago – all that’s missing are my pink ladies. What a fabulous way to reignite excitement around this family favourite film for such a big anniversary - I’m thrilled that we’re able to offer fans old and new a chance to experience the Grease magic for themselves.”
The event is being held on Thursday 10th and Friday 11th May and will give fans the chance to step back in time to the fabulous fifties and iconic sleepover scene from the film – watching a screening of the film in an exact replica of Frenchy’s bedroom.
On arrival, hopelessly devoted fans will enjoy the pop-up’s patterned pink wallpaper, plush carpets, satin-fringed curtains, and Rydell High flags. There will even be a giant panda toy poised to paw Rizzo’s silky drawers.

Plus, for those really wanting a ‘look at me I’m Sandra Dee’ moment, props will be scattered in the room - rollers, hair nets, jackets and much more.
