A poem, a film, and Kublai Khan are all points of inspiration for the 1980 romantic musical fantasy film, Xanadu (you might also recognize the name as the mansion in Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane). As a frustrated artist who paints large versions of album covers, Sonny Malone (Michael Beck) yearns for something more in life. In a fateful encounter he is kissed by one of nine muses (Olivia Newton-John) who are dancing in the street. From that moment on he is determined to open his much desired roller-skating rink (named Xandu) and to be with his love from another world. We’ll admit it, aside from the neon and roller-skating, it’s the ELO song “Xanadu” that fills our hearts with joy and inspired us to make it happen!

Tynan DeLong is an artist based in Brooklyn, NY, working as a filmmaker, actor and writer. Several of his shorts can be found on No Budge and his debut feature Dad & Step-Dad is set to be released in 2023.
