Winter blues setting in? FLASHDANCE DELUXE promises to transport you to another time and get you moving…the 80’s way! Come celebrate the 40th anniversary of this cult classic – a dark dramatic dance film starring Jennifer Beals about a passionate young dancer who aspires to become a professional ballerina. An evening of 80’s fashion (dress up and you could win!), aerobics, special guests and pre-show footage from the 80’s vaults of Kingston and beyond. Sneakers, headbands, and cut-off sweatshirts not included in the price of admission.
* Please bring your preferred mask, socially distance when possible and only remove mask when eating/drinking. Thanks for helping us make this large event more welcoming to all.
A regular (film-only) encore screening of Flashdance will take place on Thursday January 26 @ 8:30pm.
Alex Owens (Jennifer Beals) is a beautiful young woman who works a day job in a steel mill and dances in a bar at night. When Alex discovers that her handsome boss, Nick Hurley (Michael Nouri), is both interested in her and supportive of her performing career, she renews her efforts to get accepted into a prestigious dance conservatory. Although Alex is frightened of failure, she is cheered on by Nick, as well as by her mentor, former ballet performer Hanna Long (Lilia Skala).
Flashdance is an experience that grows upon you relying on the charism of Beals and the atmosphere created by Lyne’s keen eye for sexiness and Moroder’s ear for groundbreaking music.Flash Fiction
