HOLLYWOOD, July 8 (UPI) -- Paramount Pictures says weekend screenings of the sing-a-long version of "Grease" are selling out across the United States.

Sellouts have been reported in Austin, Texas; Los Angeles; New York; Ocala, Fla.; San Diego and San Francisco for the engagements of the 1978 film classic starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, the studio said in a news release Thursday.

Travolta's hometown of Ocala has reported all showings of the limited engagement are sold out.

The "Grease" sing-a-long is to begin playing Thursday night in its first run of exclusive showings in 12 markets across the country. The first cities to show the film are New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle, Ft. Lauderdale/Miami, San Diego, Austin and Ocala.

Paramount Pictures said it will expand the film July 15 to Houston; Orlando, Fla.; Phoenix; San Antonio and Detroit -- cities where fans took part in an online poll and demanded the movie open in their city. The film is being distributed by Paramount Pictures under the newly created Insurge Pictures label.
