Auditorium[edit | edit source]

Auditorium north end

West of the main building, the auditorium is where Stephanie Zinone reamed Michael Carrington with Cool Rider (Song). In the same area is where Johnny Nogerelli and Michael did their transaction, in the fenced-in hallway. The entrance for the June Moon Talent Show was on the auditorium's west side.

Cafeteria[edit | edit source]

The Rydell cafeteria, where Charades was filmed, is actually not in the actual Excelsior High School cafeteria - that's actually at the north end of the school, near the tree Stephanie was leaning against when Mr. Stuart arrived.

Track & Field[edit | edit source]

Where Coach Calhoun was drilling the T-Birds, using a tackling sled, which - on Calhoun's orders - they pushed towards an open hole in the field.

The location for Rydell in Grease was filmed at Venice High School, and the location in Grease 2 was filmed at Excelsior High School. However, unlike the filming locations for Grease, all shots of Rydell in Grease 2 were filmed on-site at Excelsior.
