Roller Boogie is a American romantic musical drama film starring Linda Blair and introduces Jim Bray , a former competitive artistic skater from California. The film is set in the Venice, California suburb of Los Angeles at the height of the roller skating fad of the late s. Along the way they must thwart a powerful mobster who wants the land their favorite roller rink sits on and compete in the Boogie Contest.
The film received mostly negative reviews during its theatrical release but in recent years has become a cult classic and a time capsule of the late 70's disco era. Linda Blair did several more movies. Bobby James and his friends Phones, Hoppy, Gordo, and several others skate to work on the Venice, California boardwalk. Meanwhile, in Beverly Hills, Terry Barkley, genius flautist is also heading towards the beach in her Excalibur Phateon car. She also is joined by her stuck-up girlfriend Lana.
Bobby is skating on the boardwalk with a female friend when he encounters Terry. But she remains aloof and spurns his advance. Later they meet at a local skating rink called Jammers. During a near catastrophic skating incident where Bobby saves the day, she gives in.
Terry wants to pay him to teach her how to skate for the Roller Disco contest. Even though they share a flirty, romantic couples skate, later on she rebuffs him yet again. The next day has both Terry and Bobby getting flack from their respected friends and family.
She has had enough and goes to the beach. She finds Bobby there, practicing a jump and turns on the charm. He shares with her his dream to become an Olympic Roller Skater.

Brand New Key. The track originally featured on the Prisoner album, and a rare accompanying video clip featuring Cher roller-skating also appeared around the same time as the release of the movie.
Craig Safan composed cues for the film's original score, however, the film tends to rely on actual songs as opposed to instrumental pieces. Only one song featured in the movie does not feature on the soundtrack, Jean Shy's Night Dancer, which appears in the movie when Terry first visits the roller-disco rink. See all customer images.
