Get Your Groove On With ‘Footloose’ on Blu-ray, September 27th

Filled with electrifying dancing, memorable music and timeless spirit, the contagious celebration of youth FOOTLOOSE arrives on Blu-ray for the first time ever and in a new Deluxe Edition DVD, both featuring more than 30 minutes of all-new special features, on September 27, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment. In this beloved fable about teen exuberance overcoming rigid, misplaced morality, Kevin Bacon lights up the screen as city-boy Ren, an outsider who finds himself in an uptight Midwestern town where dancing has been banned.  The film’s sensational soundtrack spawned two #1 hits: “Let’s Hear It For The Boy”, and, of course, Kenny Loggins’ rocking anthem “Footloose”, along with enduring classics such as “Dancing In The Sheets”, “Holding Out For A Hero”, “I’m Free (Heaven Helps The Man)” and the love theme “Almost Paradise”.  FOOTLOOSE also stars John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lori Singer and Chris Penn.
