Bring out your widest lapels and watch this classic 1977 disco film starring John Travolta on the BIG SCREEN in air conditioning. Need I say more?
This is Travolta’s break out role, includes great dance floor euphoria and Bee Gees music. The show will be introduced with comments from UBC educator William Brown.
7:50 pm film (118 mins) in English. More info/watch trailer/buy tix ($10): https://viff.org/whats-on/saturday-night-fever/
Showing in the smaller Studio Theatre with less than 40 seats so I strongly suggest buying your ticket asap. If you don’t buy ahead, you may not get in.
To join us…buy your tkt online…arrive at the theatre 15 mins before showtime to meet/sit with the group. Wear a groovy 70s shirt if you can.
"It’s Tony’s pent-up physicality – his needing to dance, his becoming himself only when he dances – that draws us into the pop rapture of this film." "The mood, the beat, and the trance rhythm are so purely entertaining…"
The film is part of VIFF’s Summer In the 70’s series.
Hope to see you there!
ps...add the Bee Gees("Stayin Alive") and Saturday Night Fever soundtrack to your music lists so you can enjoy in the music before film night. (the soundtrack was the second best-selling soundtrack of all time with over 45 million units sold)
