London: Hollywood actor John Travolta has promised to treat his fans in his adopted hometown of Ocala, Florida, with snacks after they campaigned to have his classic film `Grease` shown in their local movie theatres.

The 1978 musical has been re-released in the US as a sing-a-long version, but film fans in Ocala were left fuming when they found out the picture starring their most famous resident would not be appearing locally.

An online competition was launched, with organisers promising to show the film in the city with the most votes - and residents in Ocala flooded the site. They won the contest and Travolta has thanked them for their support by promising to buy popcorn, soda and candy for every local who sees the film, reports contactmusic.com.

`I want to thank you, my hometown, for showing your support for the `Grease Sing A-Long` and bringing it to the Regal Hollywood 16 in Ocala. I am so impressed that show times sold out, I would like to treat each `Grease Sing A-Long` ticket holder to a popcorn, soda and candy item when you attend the movie on July 8, 9 or 10,` Travolta said in a press release.

Travolta and his family moved to Ocala in 2003.
