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.
