Skatetown, U.S.A. (1979) - Full Length - Free Movie Stream on YouTube

The setting is one evening at a fictional Los Angeles-area roller disco called Skatetown, U.S.A, drawn by scriptwriters from Flipper's Roller Boogie Palace, a disco roller rink which had opened in West Hollywood on Santa Monica Boulevard earlier in 1979 and was fleetingly a very popular celebrity hangout. The plot, such as it is, has to do with a rivalry between two skaters in a contest (played by Swayze and Bradford), the winning prize for which is $1000 and a moped. There are many short, broadly comedic and slapstick sub-plots (such as a gag having to do with itching powder) set between long roller skating sequences and musical performances. After a game of chicken played on motorized roller skates the two rivals become friends.
