Obsolete Cinema presents Xanadu & The Wiz
Dec 28, 2014 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm| Free
It’s been a wonderful year for Obsolete Cinema, so much so that we know only one way to close it out: kicking up our heels and belting out a hearty song or three. Join us for a whopper of a musical double feature!
First up, it’s the roller disco phantasmagoria ‘Xanadu’ (1980), with Olivia Newton-John stars alongside Michael Beck (‘The Warriors‘) and the depressingly spry Hollywood legend Gene Kelly. See the trio traipse through Venice Beach, shop for deep discounts, and open up a magical nightclub to put on a big show. It’s the movie that spawned a thousand neon tights!
Then ease on down the road with Sidney Lumet’s ‘The Wiz’ (1978), a brave new take on L. Frank Baum’s Oz tale featuring Diana Ross, Richard Pryor, Nipsey Russell, and Michael Jackson!
The party starts at Freddy’s Bar at a new time — 4pm — with trivia, prizes, and all the usual happy hour antics till 6.
