The film was released in 1977 and stars a young Travolta. By night he is the king of the local disco, 2001 Odyssey. Have fun with this theme! Play some 70s disco, practice your jives and boogies, wear some flares and sparkly 70s costumes and decorate with disco balls and lights. Another film from the late 70s disco era is Xanadu, starring Olivia Newton John.
Clothing and Costumes
In the film Travolta wears a white suit, but there are plenty of 70s disco costumes to choose from. These include flares, sparkly shirts and roller skates. Browse the shops below for some costume ideas.

Entertainment and Music
Music for a Saturday Night Fever party should include a lot of 70s disco. Songs by the Bee Gees featured heavily in the movie and soundtrack. Other artists include KC and the Sunshine Band and Yvonne Elliman.
Watch the film, play the soundtrack, have a dance competition and play 70's or Saturday Night Fever trivia.
