CLOSING THE SEASON WITH LOTS OF MUSIC
This summer’s Park Your Cinema concludes in September, with films in which music is the main star. We invite you to SNFCC’s Great Lawn to sing and dance along with your favorite film characters from the late seventies.
Program curated by Elias Frangoulis
Boy meets girl in the summer before school starts and tears them apart. It turns out they both go to the same high school, and their love will go through a test before a resplendent music and dance finale (and happy end, obviously). The greatest 1978 U.S. box office hit and the most successful musical in the history of cinema, the film was based on the 1971 rock and roll theatrical musical of the same title, establishing John Travolta (hot on the heels of Saturday Night Fever, one year earlier) and making Anglo-Australian Olivia Newton-John a superstar.
