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.”

Lola Staar’s Dreamland Roller Rink (3052 West 21st St. at the boardwalk in Coney Island) is open Fridays, from 7 pm to midnight, Saturdays, from noon to midnight, and Sundays from 1 pm to 9 pm. General admission is $10; skate rentals are $5. On Aug. 9, admission is $12, $10 for ’80s attire. For more information, visit
