You Could Be Dancin'--Yeah


The multi-colored dancefloor where a white-suited John Travolta strutted his stuff in Saturday Night Fever is to be auctioned.

The cult item of memorabilia from the 1977 movie has been saved from a doomed Brooklyn nightclub.

Organizers of the auction are expecting bids of more than $80,000 for the piece of Hollywood history. The 24-feet by 16-feet dancefloor, which came to symbolise the 70s disco craze, has more than 300 colored flashing lights under a Perspex surface. The club where the dance floor had been a fixture since the movie was made closed last week after being sold to a real estate investment company. Bar owner Jay Rizzo who saved the floor told the New York Post: "It has literally been the heartbeat of this club."

Saturday Night Fever earned Travolta an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of teenage Brooklyn paint-store clerk Tony Manero, who every Saturday night would take to the dancefloor.

The dance floor will be auctioned on April 1 with bids expected in a live sale and on eBay.

You Said

I'd love to have that - just for fun. What a classic movie. And he's still dancing on the big screen.

I'm shocked that floor still exists. Umm... 24 x 16 that would almost fit in my living room.

Damn, I would love to that that. But then I think, where the heck would I put it? On my garage floor of coursse!

If I remember correctly, the late Gene Siskel (Chicago Tribune film critic) bought Travolta's white suit when it went up for auction.
