That soundtrack! That wardrobe! Those moves! Close out 2017 by celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the film that launched disco into the stratosphere (and with it, the career of a relatively unknown young actor named John Travolta) – director John Badham’s SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER!

Boogie on down to The Frida Cinema and experience this 1977 classic on the big screen, Saturday, December 30 at 8pm! Advance tickets now available at The Frida Cinema, and online at boxoffice.printtixusa.com/fridacinema/advance?i=2370!

Travolta received an Academy Award nomination for his role as Tony Manero, a dissatisfied young paint store clerk still living with his parents in Brooklyn NY. His only joy in life is his weekends, when he joins his friends at the local disco and where his is able to forget the harsh realities of his life – a dead-end job, clashes with his unsupportive and squabbling parents, racial tensions in the local community, and his general restlessness – by losing himself in dance. A huge commercial success, the film significantly helped to popularize disco music around the world, aided in large part by the film’s sensational, record-breaking soundtrack, featuring a string of hits by the Bee Gees. The film showcased aspects of the music, the dancing, and the subculture surrounding the disco era: symphony-orchestrated melodies; haute couture styles of clothing; pre-AIDS sexual promiscuity; and graceful choreography.

In 2010, Saturday Night Fever was deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. A true must-see classic, Saturday Night Fever is a blistering time capsule to an era of glittery excess and escapism, which deftly examines the aftermath of the drug-fueled zeitgeist as well.

“Saturday Night Fever is wonderfully honest and completely accurate when it comes to depicting that stagnant environment that keeps young people like Tony pinned down.” – Kathleen Carroll, New York Daily News

“Only the dancing has dated in this classic, but Travolta’s sense of helplessness and despair is easily translated to modern America in this criminally underrated performance.” – Rob Fraser, Empire

“There’s a lot in the movie that’s sad and painful, but after a few years what you remember is John Travolta on the dance floor in that classic white disco suit, and the Bee Gees on the soundtrack.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
