This Wednesday, 6th February 2019 at 6.30 pm, Sunaparanta will host the screening of ‘Saturday Night Fever’ at the outdoor amphitheatre, presented by Arvind Sivakumaran. Film: Saturday Night Fever (1977) Directed by: John Badham Starring: John Travolta, Karen Lynn Gorney Run-Time: 1 hr 58 mins About the Film People remember “Saturday Night Fever” as a cheery film about the glory days of disco filled with classic Bee Gees numbers like ‘Staying Alive’, ‘More than a Woman’, ‘If I Can’t Have You’ and ‘You Should Be Dancing’. What is often forgotten is that it is also a brutal, unpleasant and sometimes uncomfortable story of a teenager growing up in a misogynistic, violent and bigoted environment who tries to find an escape from his ‘dead-end’ existence in his dancing. Travolta is excellent in his Oscar-nominated, star-making performance as Tony Manero, the “kid” from “no place” who’s “going nowhere”. The late and legendary critic Gene Siskel often stated that SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER was his favourite film of all time. Note: Screening only for 18 years and above
