Xanadu

April 20

USA | 1980 | 93 Minutes | Robert Greenwald

This 1980 musical fantasy may have been a notorious bomb when released, but it has grown into a beloved cult classic thanks to an amazing soundtrack by Olivia Newton-John and E.L.O., choreography by Kenny Ortega (Dirty Dancing), the mere presence of Gene Kelly, and a campy roller-skating finale that is resplendently insane.
