  • Xanadu is a story about a frustrated artist named Sonny Malone (Michael Beck) who paints album covers for a living and is unhappy about it. By tossing some of his drawings into the wind, he somehow brings a painting on a wall of nine girls to life and one of them — Kira (Olivia Newton-John) — finds and kisses him. Shortly after, he meets Danny McGuire (Gene Kelly), a former big band leader. The two strike up a friendship and, with encouragement from Kira, make plans to convert an abandoned building (The Pan Pacific Auditorium) into a roller disco.
