On Saturday night, Lola Staar’s Dreamland Roller Rink in Coney Island threw an opening extravaganza that drew a crowd attired in nothing less than their finest sequins, day-glo wigs and retro attire.
The kitsch celebration continues with another fashion challenge this Saturday, Aug. 9 at 7 pm, when the rink hosts a “Flashdance”-themed night.
Roller girls and guys — 21 and over — are invited to dress in fabulous ’80s attire — feathered hair, blue eye shadow, leg warmers — to save $2 on admission. Adrian Lyne’s cult classic flick about a gal welder by day who dabbles in exotic dance at night in pursuit of her dreams will be shown on the big screen while DJ MomoTaro spins “roller dance classics.”
