A group of dedicated Saturday Night Fever fans will celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary by bringing its disco setting back to life! For the night of Dec. 13, the 2001 Odyssey nightclub will return to the Bay Ridge space it once occupied for a free, blow-out dance party. The organizer of the event said that she and her five feverish friends want to bring Brooklynites back to 1977 by recreating the iconic spot. The former site of the 2001 Space Odyssey Disco where Saturday Night Fever was filed in 1977 was at: 802 64-th Street in Bensonhurst (Brooklyn). It later became "The Spectrum" gay disco club in 1987, owned by Jay Rizzo and finally closed in 1995. The property was then sold to a developer and turned into the Chinese restaurant where the reunion was held yesterday, (13-Dec-17), to mark the 40-th anniversary of the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack,movie and album with John Travolta.
For the soundtrack album, see Saturday Night Fever (soundtrack). Saturday Night Fever. Theatrical release poster. Saturday Night Fever is a 1977 American musical-drama film directed by John Badham and starring John Travolta as Tony Manero, a working-class young man who spends his weekends dancing and drinking at a local Brooklyn discothèque; Karen Lynn Gorney as Stephanie Mangano, his dance partner and eventual confidante; and Donna Pescow as Annette, Tony's former dance partner and would-be.
Saturday Night Fever, although hardly as prodigious an artistic achievement as those precursors, was precisely that kind of musical phenomenon for the second half of the '70s. Ironically, before its release, the disco boom had seemingly run its course, primarily in Europe, and was confined mostly to black culture and the gay underground in America. Saturday Night Fever, as a movie and an album, plus a brace of hit singles off of it, suddenly made disco explode into mainstream, working- and middle-class America with a new immediacy and urgency, increasing its audience ten-fold overnight.
