Footloose Quote-Along and Sing-Along Party

Celebrate New Year's Eve with your favorite Kevin Bacon movie from 1984. Our Chicago-smart hero arrives in a small, repressed Midwestern town, falls for a girl (Lori Singer), and teaches everyone the power of Kenny Loggins. Memorable Reagan-era hits from the movie also include--besides the title track--"Let's Hear It for the Boy" by Deniece Williams, Sammy Hagar's "The Girl Gets Around," and John Mellencamp's "Hurts So Good." Oh, indeed it does. In supporting roles, also look for a young, pre-sophisticated Sarah Jessica Parker, a relatively svelte Chris Penn, and John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest as the disapproving parents. Drinking and toasting follow the movie, which is subtitled with the song lyrics. (PG) T. BOND
