The movie that put disco on the map! John Travolta ignites the screen as Brooklyn’s Tony Manero, swirling and swaying to the Bee Gees’ soundtrack to prove he’s king of the dance floor. In the meantime, he falls in love with a young woman whose ambitions differ from his own…but who is the ideal dance partner. ‘Throbbing excitement…boisterous energy’ (‘New York Daily News’).
Starring: John Travolta, Karen Gorney, Barry Miller, Joseph Cali, Paul Pape, Donna Pescow, Julie Bovasso, Fran Drescher
