For our Hindsight Is 20/20 series, we're revisiting some of our favorite films that were underappreciated in their time.

Sing the songs. Feel the magic. Glow like a muse. Learn the choreography. For this special screening, we'll supply glow sticks, "franchised glitz," and all the props you need to make your dreams come true. So just Xana-DU it!

Drenched in the glitz and gloss of the late 1970s, XANADU is MTV before there was MTV, and its brilliant colors, early computer animation, and slick editing set the stage for the golden age of music videos.

When you arrive at our special Glow-Along screening, you'll receive an almost silly amount of glowing accessories that'll help you you lose yourself in this deeply relatable tale of a disillusioned artist (Michael Beck) who's persuaded by a former bandleader (the great Gene Kelly in his last big screen musical) and a mysterious beauty (Olivia Newton-John) to open a state-of-the-art roller disco.

With spandex-clad vixens, guys with over-moussed hair, tightrope walkers, out-of-this-world production design, intoxicating music (including Newton-John's huge hit "Magic"), and costumes that are the last word in retro-chic, this film is a relic of a long-gone, dreamy era we will never see again. Join us, revisit the magic, and glow along to the marvel that is XANADU.
