Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Olivia Newton-John fractured her coccyx while filming the dance sequence "Suddenly".
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In "The Fall", When Danny is skating in Venice Beach, his red fish shirt is buttoned. In the next shot, his shirt is unbuttoned.
  • The old building that became Xanadu was the Pan Pacific Auditorium on Beverly Boulevard, near CBS's Television City in Hollywood, California. It was built in 1935 but was only used for exteriors in this movie. Interiors were filmed on Stage 4 of the Hollywood Center Studios. The Pan Pacific Auditorium was destroyed by a fire in 1989. A community center now sits on the site, featuring a single version of the Pan Pacific's 4 curved deco spires
  • In the two-page booklet included with the DVD, it is stated that the film was originally conceived as a straight-on roller-disco movie, but that the imminent release of two quickie roller-disco films (Skatetown, U.S.A. (1979) and Roller Boogie (1979)) prompted many changes (like its blending of 1940s and 1980s styles), which may explain why star Olivia Newton-John complained of the film being written while it was being made.
