The premiere of Saturday Night Fever
David Woodall aka Tony never dreamed that when he retired to Edmund Hillary Retirement Village he would be encouraged to become Auckland’s answer to John Travolta.
Saturday Night Fever was r-rated, edgy, risque and very cool.
In 1977 the Edmund Hillary cast were bringing up their families, and Saturday nights featured Bruce Forsyth’s Generation Game on the box, meanwhile their teenage kids were trying every trick in the book to get into the hottest movie in town, set in the streets of Brooklyn, New York.
Fast forward to 2014. The parents are now grandparents, and even great grandparents. The tables have turned.
They are featuring in their very own version of Saturday Night Fever, and showing us all that you are never too old to be cool, be sexy and have fun.
Over 400 residents and guests enjoyed the red carpet premiere of Saturday Night Fever, Edmund Hillary style.
