Need we ask…

The Orion is presenting Can’t Stop the Music: A Sing Along screening. Review your lyrics and do whatever it takes to wake up those vocal cords!
Afterwards, we’ll strut over to Cavelier for a drink.
A 1980 American musical comedy film directed by Nancy Walker. Written by Allan Carr and Bronté Woodard, the film is a pseudo-biography of disco’s Village People which bears only a vague resemblance to the actual story of the group’s formation. It was produced by Thorn EMI Screen Entertainment (formerly EMI Films), and distributed by independent distributor Associated Film Distribution (AFD).
Can’t Stop the Music is notorious for being the first winner of the Worst Picture Golden Raspberry Award, for it was a double feature of this and Xanadu that inspired John J. B. Wilson to start the Razzies. –Wikipedia
