Skatetown, USA // 2K Revival // Disco Vinyl Afterparty
Director: William A. Levey
1979, USA, 98 mins., Digital Cinema, PG
SKATETOWN USA was for many years the holy grail of roller disco movies, having never received anything beyond a VHS release. Scott Baio, Patrick Swayze, Maureen McGovern (Marcia Brady), Ron Palillo (Horshack), Flip Wilson, Ruth Buzzi, Billy Barty… a DJ that shoots lasers out of his fingers between awesome musical interludes by huge disco acts like GQ, Earth Wind and Fire, The Jacksons, Heatwave, etc… you have no choice but to come out for this one.
And we are definitely gonna get decked out for the after party, an all vinyl Boogie Inferno DJ set with Dollar Ben and several other surprise guests. Bring yer skates and dress accordingly!
