Xanadu (1980) at midnight with Gene Kelly & Olivia Newton John; Sunset Grill

Please state in your rsvp whether or not you will be joining us at 10:00 p.m. or later at Sunset Grill for their late night menu. It will help me determine what size table to get.

Olivia Newton-John stars in this fantastical musical odyssey as a Greek muse who visits Earth as a human and, with the help of a rollerskating Gene Kelly, inspires young artist Michael Beck to open a glitzy disco roller rink. Lively updating of 1947's "Down to Earth" features songs by Newton-John and The Electric Light Orchestra, including "Suddenly," "Magic" and "All Over the World." With the possible exception of Shock Treatment, I consider Xanadu the greatest musical of all time. Disagree? Come to Sunset Grill, and we'll discuss! :)

I believe Gene Kelly set a record by starring as the character of Danny McGuire in Cover Girl in 1944 with Rita Hayworth and then starring as the same character in Xanadu, 36 years later. Xanadu was meant to be the other book end to his legendary career. While not well received upon release, Xanadu now has a cult following and was recently made into a musical which played at the Boiler Room earlier this year. If you haven't seen Cover Girl, The Belcourt is screening it the first weekend in August.

Xanadu; 1980; 96 Minutes

I'll be at Sunset Grill at 10:00 p.m. Their address is 2001 Belcourt Ave across from Cabana. Here's a link to their website: http://www.sunsetgrill.com/

If you have not been to The Belcourt before, you need to get a parking ticket for your vehicle from the machine by the sidewalk or you may be ticketed by security as non-Belcourt attendees using The Belcourt parking lot pay a parking charge. You will need the code for the parking machine. It can be obtained when you buy your ticket on site from the ticket. It is also printed on your ticket if you buy it online.

If you don't spot us at The Belcourt or Sunset Grill, call or text me at[masked]-4756. I'll come out to the lobby and show you where we are sitting at. I imagine we'll be sitting in the center section about half way down.
