Description

Don your bell bottoms and grab a signature cocktail for a far out night at the Cinema. Set to the emblematic Bee Gees soundtrack, John Travolta stars as Tony Moreno, disillusioned hardware store clerk by day and king of the local discotheque by night. Stuck in the slums of Brooklyn, a dance competition might just be his ticket to a better life. Remembered for its mesmerizing mix of working-class grit and 70s euphoria, it’s gone shockingly under examined. To kick off the screening, join culture critic and video essayist Broey Deschanel for an exclusive premiere of her latest video unpacking the lasting influence and complicated legacy of the film you can't sweat out.

Film intro by video essayist Broey Deschanel. Come early for 70s tunes and Disco Drink Specials!
