Fans to Celebrate 40th Anniversary of SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER in Brooklyn, Today

Hundreds of fans and local residents will be putting on their white suits and polyester shirts and return to Brooklyn to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the iconic film Saturday Night Fever. The red carpet and club with its lighted dance floor opens at 5:00pm on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at 802 64th Street, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. The famed 2001 Odyssey Disco in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn will be re-opened for one night only as

The Trammps ('Disco Inferno'), The Village People and Carol Douglas perform again. The lighted dance floor on which John Travolta strutted his stuff will be back for the first time in decades. The movie's lead actress, Karen Lynn Gorney who played Stephanie, will be joined by fellow cast members. Many people who were regulars at the disco and staff will be returning to the club for the celebration.

A devoted fan and millionaire from Italy, Gianluca Mech, who has seen the movie over 30 times, rented the disco and hired the bands so Brooklyn-ites and fans could put their boogie shoes on again after 40 years. Mr. Mech made the event complimentary for residents of the local Bay Ridge neighborhood that grew up idolizing the film and that danced at the 2001 Odyssey disco. He contacted a local entertainment company Chazam to put the famed disco ball back up and return the club to its original glory. The original club DJ's Monti Rock and Ralphie Dee will be spinning records again decades after the movie first appeared. The pizza that Travolta made famous in the film will be served free all night.
