“Xanadu” is the June 14 Movie Musical Monday film for discussion with host Bill Larkin (Porchlight’s “A Class Act” and “A Funny Thing…”) and special guest Aaron Holland (playwright & ATC’s “Xanadu”). “Xanadu” is a 1980 American musical fantasy film written by Richard Christian Danus and Marc Reid Rubel, and directed by Robert Greenwald and features music by Olivia Newton-John, Electric Light Orchestra, Cliff Richard and The Tubes.
Struggling artist Sonny Malone (Michael Beck) is trapped in a dull job painting album covers. He is instantly attracted to Kira (Olivia Newton-John), an anonymous woman randomly photographed in the background of one of his assignments, but no one is able to identify her. Visiting the auditorium where the cover was shot, Sonny finds the mysterious beauty, an ageless Greek muse, who encourages him to team up with old-fashioned Danny McGuire (Gene Kelly) to build a roller-skating disco.
