XANADU at The Royal Cinema presented by Retropath!
Calling all nostalgia-freaks and celluloid junkies! Are you looking for the latest cinematic thrill? Retropath! has you covered. Specializing in the best flicks to stumble onto the screen, this series is guaranteed to deliver the wildest that cinema has to offer
XANADU follows Sonny (Michael Beck), a heavy-hearted artist who is in need of some inspiration. He meets former bandleader Danny McGuire (Gene Kelly in his last big screen role!), and the elusive and beautiful Kira (Olivia Newton-John), and together they conspire to open a roller disco called Xanadu. As much glitz, glitter and glamour as one can feasibly imagine resides inside those gilded doors, set to the music of the Electric Light Orchestra.
In spite of being one of the most notorious flops ever, this film is a sheer delight from beginning to end. It employs such an unbelievable lightness and campiness that it is impossible to watch without smiling, and is at times genuinely hilarious. Want bright colours, catchy tunes, funny dialogue and cheesy dance numbers? XANADU has it covered.
Our screenings would be nothing without our freaky sponsors: The Beguiling and Eyesore Cinema!
