West Shore Community College’s 50th anniversary classic Hollywood film series, in collaboration with Manistee’s Vogue Theater, continues on Dec. 13, at 7:30 p.m., with the screening of the disco era classic “Saturday Night Fever” (1977) starring John Travolta.
Tony Manero (John Travolta) doesn't have much going for him during the weekdays. He still lives at home and works as a paint store clerk in his Brooklyn, N.Y., neighborhood. But he lives for the weekends, when he and his friends go to the local disco and dance the night away.
When a big dance competition is announced, he wrangles the beautiful and talented Stephanie (Karen Lynn Gorney) to be his partner. As the two train for the big night, they start to fall for each other as well.
The film’s soundtrack, featuring disco songs by the Bee Gees, is one of the best-selling soundtracks of all time.
Two films from each decade of the college’s existence (1967 - 2017) are being screened until June 2017. The remaining films will be shown on Jan. 17, Feb. 14, March 14, April 18, May 16, and June 13, at 7:30 p.m.
Moviegoers will be charged the same ticket price for the decade in which the films were released.
