It’s go­ing to be sys­tem­atic! Hy­dro­matic! Ul­tra­matic!

The hit film Grease, star­ring John Tra­volta and Olivia New­tonJohn, will be on the big screen at a drive-in movie fundraiser for Garston School on Novem­ber 25.

Or­gan­iser He­len Innes said the school is fundrais­ing for a new heat pump for the school pool.

‘‘When we were ap­proached by Fire­fly Cin­e­mas... we grabbed the op­por­tu­nity. Af­ter all, how of­ten do you get to go to the movies in Athol and you don’t even have to get out of the com­fort of your own car.’’

The film won’t be the only en­ter­tain­ment. ‘‘There will be El­bow Junc­tion to jive to, a bar, spit roast pork burg­ers, Amer­i­can hot­dogs, mar­ket stalls and a candy bar brim­ming with pop­corn and ice creams, just to cre­ate the nos­tal­gia of the old days.

‘‘We chose Grease as we feel it fits the drive-in-movie theme per­fectly and we are hop­ing to see loads of those beau­ti­ful clas­sic beasts be­ing driven into the Athol Do­main.’’ ❚ Tick­ets are $50 per ve­hi­cle for four or more peo­ple or $15 per per­son.’’
