Instead, he meets Danny McGuire, a retired clarinetist playing a few sour notes on a rock overlooking the swells and beach bunnies. Another great musical classic which by the way didn't do well at the box office but who cares it's a musical with a lot of great tunes in the film. I would recommend this to a friend Olivia Newton's musical follow up to Grease.

In between swapping barbs with his boss, Sonny frequents Venice Beach and the Santa Monica Pier; shocked to discover Kiera, who roller skates past him with a brief pause to plant a kiss on his lips before disappearing into thin air.
We enjoyed this movie all over again in spectacular Blu-ray. Xanadu opens with a phantasmagoric prologue: the muses, bedecked and bedazzled in diaphanous gowns that vaguely look like castoffs from the Home Shopping Network — complete with roller skates and legwarmers — leaping off a giant billboard in Venice Beach to begin their streak across the California landscape, destined to inspire great things from unsuspecting mere mortals. Xanadu is so mindlessly conceived, so thoughtlessly slapped together, and so ridiculously void of any purpose other than to frustrate, the fact it exists at all is cause enough to scratch the ole noggin. Sadly, the only thing that held up well was the music from the movie. I bet it would be good since Andy Gibb could sing. The cd needs a remastered version by the way.
In Los Angeles, artist Sonny Malone reluctantly returns to his job at Airflow Records - his job to do poster-sized exact renderings of album covers for on-site promotions, the renderings to be as close to the originals as possible - as he could not make a living as a freelance artist, where he could truly use his artistic vision. . This is by far the best looking and sounding version of all! If you saw the film in the theater in 1980 you know where you stand on the matter. Then the three transform an abandoned building into a neon-lit, rock and roll heaven. This is puzzling, since there would no doubt be plenty of room on the disc to include them. Well, Kiera is a muse — not a creature of flesh and blood. Each release improves on the previous one in visual and audio quality, although not always significantly.
A great rock 'n' roll band. He loses direction along the way, but alas, not enough steam as he plows through the guardrail and plummets head over heels off the Santa Monica Pier and into the roaring surf far below.

First, she locates a clarinet player whom she inspired in the 1940s, and convinces him to return to music by funding the rink. But if you'd rather sit there with your pencil and steno pad, notating every intellectual criticism you can brainstorm; I'm sure you can come up with a lot. Still, the good qualities of this movie won me over in the end, but I am glad that we only rented it.
I had almost given up. I would recommend this to a friend A childhood favorite of mine. Break out your rollerskates, and have a ball! Now, Sonny makes a pitch for Danny to buy up the place and transform it into Xanadu — a nightclub with infinite possibilities, melding the past with the present. Peppers and Can't Stop The Music on Blu-ray soon! Returning to the studio, Sonny realizes the girl on the cover of the latest album assigned for him to recreate and the girl who tongued him in the park are one in the same. And oh even though Michael Beck is good on this one but did you know that they originally asked the late Andy Gibb to play Sonny Malone?
