Grease will definitely be the word on everyone’s lips this summer with the news that Motorpoint is to host a special drive-in screening of the iconic movie.

Motorpoint Sheffield will once again be the venue for a one-off themed Drive In Cinema this year on Saturday 8th September. Aiming to build on the success of last year’s sell-out screening of ‘Dirty Dancing’, we are working with Sheffield-based Urban Entertainment to put on a special showing of ‘Grease’ in the grounds of the seven acre branch. The famous singalong, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, celebrates its 40th anniversary this year so it seems a fitting tribute.

The event will open at 6pm and the movie will start rocking and rolling from around 8pm onwards. Tickets start at £20 and food and drink will be provided by Sheffield-based Bear’s Street Food. Make sure you get there early so you don’t miss out on the special movie-themed soundtrack created by the DJs at Hallam FM, which will be broadcast exclusively prior to the movie. Plus, as part of the drive-in experience, Motorpoint will be offering visitors the chance to receive a part-exchange valuation on their car while they wait for the movie to start. 

All profits from the evening will go to Cash for Kids, the Sheffield-based children’s charity, which works tirelessly to support children under the age of 18 who are sick, disadvantaged or in need of extra support.

Chris Goodison, General Manager of Motorpoint in Sheffield, said: “Our annual drive in cinema  is back - bigger and better than ever before on September 8, and in the words of Danny from the movie, it will be automatic, systematic, and even hydromatic. We look forward to welcoming everyone again to Motorpoint for a very special screening of such an iconic movie as ‘Grease’ – all in aid of Cash for Kids.” 

Tickets for the Drive-In Cinema are available from Hallam FM. For more information visit: https://planetradio.co.uk/hallam/competitions/win/get-front-row-tickets-to-the-motorpoint-drive-in-movie/ 

The UK’s largest independent car retailer opened its Sheffield branch just minutes from both J33 and J34 of the M1 in April 2017. Home to 500 nearly new and used cars, the team pride themselves on the great choice, value and service available to customers. 

Motorpoint Sheffield is located at Europa Link, Sheffield Business Park, Sheffield, S9 1XU.
