Clad in crisp white suit and platform shoes, Oscar-nominated John Travolta will be strutting back onto the big screen. See this 1977 cult classic, where Travolta plays 19-year-old Brooklyn kid Tony Manero – whose slick weekend dance moves offer an escape from the mundanities of life.
Stuck in a dead-end job, Tony lives at home with his disapproving parents and dreams of a better life across the Brooklyn Bridge in Manhattan. He seizes the opportunity when a dance contest is launched, dumping his adoring partner Annette in favour of upwardly mobile Stephanie (Gorney).
A hugely influential, much- acclaimed box office smash, with a soundtrack featuring timeless Bee Gees classics including ‘Stayin Alive’ and ‘Night Fever’, don’t miss the rare chance to see Saturday Night Fever in its original cinematic glory.
