Saturday Night Fever

Drama, Music Rated: R 118 min


The dance movie that made John Travolta and disco worldwide phenomena was the biggest R-rated box office hit of the 1970s. Donna Pescow gives a standout performance as the much maligned Annette, whose infatuation with Tony tragically blinds her to the bigotry and misogyny that surrounds her. Saturday Night Fever propelled the Bee Gees’ iconic soundtrack to the top of the charts. In 2010, the film was recognized as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the Library of Congress and is preserved in the National Film Registry. Come see it — and feel it — on the big screen, the way it was meant to be experienced!

Saturday Night Fever gets at something deeply romantic: the need to move, to dance, and the need to be who you’d like to be. Nirvana is the dance; when the music stops, you return to being ordinary.” — Pauline Kael, The New Yorker
Saturday Night Fever is wonderfully honest and completely accurate when it comes to depicting that stagnant environment that keeps young people like Tony pinned down.” — Kathleen Carroll, The New York Daily News
