Fans get into the groove at Madonna movie screening of 'Desperately Seeking Susan'

Madonna fans will descend on Reading Cinemas in Auburn this Saturday for a screening of Desperately Seeking Susan.

Released in 1985, the film is Madonna’s first major screen role and spawned the classic dance floor hit ‘Into The Groove’. 

The screening is being hosted by singer, DJ and devoted Madonna fan Ray Isaac, who also produces the popular Madonna-themed parties, Tribute Bar. 

“Why people should come? Because they will never get to see this movie digitally-enhanced and on the big screen again,” Ray tells SX. 

“It has been 32 years since the movie was released and they are going to get loads of extra special things [on the night].”

These include behind-the-scenes footage, blooper reel, cast interviews and a special thank yo message from director Susan Seidelman.

Ray said Auburn’s Reading Cinemas is the perfect place to host the screening.

“The night will bring madonna fans from all over NSW. I chose this cinema because the city cinemas are way too small and I want to see my queen on the big ass screen in the best digitally-enhanced quality as possible. Wherever Madonna goes, so do her fans.”

Ray hopes to bring Madonna’s other films to big screen on a monthly basis with future screenings of flicks such as Who’s That Girl?, Shanghai Surprise and Evita. 

“But only if the Madonna fans support the first movie,” Ray said. “If we see there is support we will put more on!”

Desperately Seeking Susan, Saturday, November 5, 6pm, Reading Cinemas, 100 Parramatta Road, Auburn. Visit the Facebook event page here.
