Tu 7p: Roller Boogie
Directed by Mark L. Lester; Cast: Linda Blair, Jim Bray, Beverly Garland, Roger Perry, Jimmy Van Patten, Kimberly Beck; 1979, 103 min
A fully matured Linda Blair leads a group of teens as they fight their parents and those damn corporate businessmen from shutting down their local roller rink. Luckily for them (and us), real-life Canadian champion Jim Bray struts his stunning skating skills to epic proportions, while the camera zooms in on a record-breaking amount of short-shorts and bursting cleavage! - Jesse Hawthorne Ficks

9:05p: Skatetown U.S.A.
Directed by William A. Levy; Cast: Greg Bradford, Kelly Lang, Patrick Swayze, Scott Baio, Flip Wilson, Maureen McCormick, Ron Palillo, Ruth Buzzi; 1979, 98 min NOT ON DVD!

An all-star cast jam packs this unjustly ignored Disco extravaganza.
Scott Baio, Marcia Brady (Maureen McCormick) and Patrick Swayze compete against one another to the bumpin' sounds of The Jacksons, Earth, Wind & Fire, and even a live performance by Dave Mason(!) High thighs, ample cleavage and glittery beards date this obscure classic with genuine expertise. Swayze's bad-boy on roller-skates is worth the admission alone! Not available on DVD, VHS, BETA, VCD, LASERDISC, or anything else ever!! - Jesse Hawthorne Ficks
