Spling’s Galileo Pick of the Week: Saturday Night Fever

Saturday Night Fever @ Kirstenbosch (17 Jan)


Strutting your stuff and disco music have become synonymous with Saturday Night Fever, an iconic film that launched John Travolta’s acting career and established The Bee Gees as a super group. While mirror balls, disco dance moves and light up floors haven’t made as much of an impression on the 21st-century as they did in the late ’70s and ’80s, Saturday Night Fever continues its legacy as a strong drama.


While the sound and lights may distract, many will be surprised to discover that there is a much darker edge to this classic. Strained family life, surviving the streets and escaping into the nightlife are all part of the game in this entertaining, street-brawling drama.


This mirror ball music drama is showing under the stars at The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
