Lace up your skates and join Olivia Newton-John in the greatest roller romance fantasy musical ever made … a place where dreams come true, a place called Xanadu! We’re paying tribute to the one-and-only ONJ with pre-show music videos, a movie-themed costume contest (or just rock your favorite Olivia look … hey, let’s get Physical!), fun props, and a big screen presentation of Xanadu, where you can get your glow on and sing-a-long to all the great ONJ and ELO tunes. You have to believe we are MAGIC!
In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure dome decree … When struggling, disillusioned album cover artist Sonny Malone (Michael Beck) falls for a heavenly beauty named Kira (Olivia Newton-John), who turns out to be an ageless Greek muse sent to Earth from Mt. Olympus to inspire humans to greatness, they team up with a former big band leader named Danny McGuire (Gene Kelly) to open an opulent roller disco that just might knock the world’s skates off! A candy-colored, neon-blasted musical fantasy extravaganza devoted to following one’s dreams, the cult classic Xanadu combines camp madness, out-of-this-world costumes and production design, and a boatload of intoxicating hit tunes from Olivia Newton-John and Electric Light Orchestra – including “Magic,” “I’m Alive” and the soaring title track – into a fun-filled time capsule of awesome 1980s Xanadu-iness! (Dir. by Robert Greenwald, 1980, USA, 96 mins., Rated PG)
