Staying Alive Locations
Locations Manager(s): Dale Benson
Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "Staying Alive":
The bar Jackie (Cynthia Rhodes) sings is New York's famed CBGB's. If you look closely the stage is angled. That is the only stage in America that is set up that way. Plus if you look on the wall, you can see the multitude of flyers posted by bands who are schedule to play there. This is still in existence today. It's located on the Bowery in the East Village. The only known 'house bands' ever to appear at CBGB's (owned by Hilly Crystal) is Blondie, Talking Heads, Prong and The Ramones. Tommy Victor from Prong (the guitarist/voice) was also a house soundman there before Prong went on to enjoy significant fame in the metal genre circa 1989-1992. [Thanks to jacq]
