In addition to her work on the 1978 film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, Birch’s choreography for the 1972 musical earned her a Tony Award nomination. She has also worked on the Broadway productions of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, A Little Night Music, Parade, and more.

Grease tells the iconic love story of Australian student Sandy and greaser Danny as they navigate friendship, romance, and high school during the 1950s.

Metrograph provides audiences with a unique cinema-going experience by preserving remnants of a late 1920s New York movie theatre. The upcoming screening will mark a year since the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences began bringing entertainment to Metrograph through its Academy at Metrograph series.
