This Week We Have Been . . .
Dusting off our leotards, sprinkling on some glitter and strutting back to 1977 Brooklyn for the Everyman cinema’s showing of Saturday Night Fever in the Old Vic Tunnels – transformed into the film’s gritty neighbourhood. You could almost smell the hotdogs and city smoke, while actors playing gum-snapping wise guys and smart talking sexy senoritas helped transport you back in time.
