Grease (1978)

For an updated location blog entry for Grease and Grease 2, click on the links!

Venice High School was the setting for most of Rydell High's exterior shots.  While some things have changed, it remains remarkably the same, especially the "Summer Nights" bleachers.

My sister re-enacting John Travolta's first day of school...

There are worse things I could do....

The carnival at the end moves to the field at John Marshall High School near the Silverlake area.

And Frenchy's house is in the Hollywood area.  Looks the same, sans Rizzo's trellis.


  1. You forgot the main filming place which was for the dance!!! its in Huntington Park High school in the gym aka the Big Gym... I went to school there

  2. Didn't forget, just haven't been there!


  3. Hi Robert, Did you look in the back garden of the sluber party house? If so, did they shoot Olivia Newton John singing 'Hopelessly Devoted To You?' there or was it on a movie set? I would really like to know and no one has been able to answer this question for me so far. Thanks, Mel

  4. No, from what I read,t hat was all on a set.
