Pittsburgh is at its steamiest in this special 40th anniversary screening. Flashdance was a word-of-mouth sleeper hit, unleashing a smash soundtrack (including Irene Cara’s anthemic Oscar-winning title song), advancing fashion and dance trends, and inciting debate over its female-empowerment stance with Jennifer Beals (in her breakout role) strenuously gigging as welder and go-go performer while aspiring to ballet.
