Got to keep on dancin’… keep on dancin’

Now Playing Patrons get lucky this August, as the zipper comes down on a super-sized review of Boogie Nights! Writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson hit the big time with this unconventional portrait of pornographers living and working in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, as seen through the eyes of well-endowed adult film star Mark Wahlberg. Is something wonderful waiting to burst forth from this ensemble of Hollywood wannabes? Or do the good vibes of the 1970s disappear with the arrival of the coke-fueled ‘80s? Be a Patron and Find Out!

Set in 1977, back when sex was safe, pleasure was a business and business was booming, idealistic porn producer Jack Horner aspires to elevate his craft to an art form. Horner discovers Eddie Adams, a hot young talent working as a busboy in a nightclub, and welcomes him into the extended family of movie-makers, misfits and hangers-on that are always around. Adams' rise from nobody to a celebrity adult entertainer is meteoric, and soon the whole world seems to know his porn alter ego, "Dirk Diggler". Now, when disco and drugs are in vogue, fashion is in flux and the party never seems to stop, Adams' dreams of turning sex into stardom are about to collide with cold, hard reality.
