Welcome to the Xanadu Preservation Society guestbook!
|Message||What a fun site! When people ask me what my favorite movie is I often think it should be a well regarded classic. But the more I think about it I realize that my favorite is one that I can watch over and over again and be delighted by for the right and wrong reasons. That film is "Xanadu". I first saw it in the early 80s when I was a young boy on HBO. It was a staple of the network back then and I scoured the listings looking for it. If it came on at 5:00 AM I would wake up and watch it. The film just made me that happy. Now that I'm in my mid-40s it still does.|
|Message||Xanadu is my favorite movie! Thank you for keeping it alive!!|
|Message||I grew up with this movie. Didn't realize what a "flop" it was until I was adult, and couldn't understand WHY!! It's nothing but a FUN movie, pure and simple. It doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is...joy.|
Long live XANADU!!!

|Message||I saw Xanadu when it opened, it showed at the Skyway 1 theater in downtown Minneapolis, which is torn down but it had a killer sound system and they had it cranked. I proceeded to go 10 more times. I am waiting for slow Universal to release a blu-ray that contains the Midnight Special, the production reels, and other extras. Heck, I'll even take the movie alone. C'mon Universal, wake up it's the 35th anniversary!|

|Message||Just this week, popular comedy podcast HOW DID THIS GET MADE? (episode #101, available at Earwolf.com) did a live feature on the movie XANADU. Naturally the 4-person panel ripped it apart, but with great humor. A message board discussion link over at the Earwolf Forums brought me to this site…|
I'm so impressed by what you've put together here. Helps me to sort out how I can love and hate simultaneously such a potent mix of sound and imagery. Big fan of ELO & ONJ separately, but the few moments they are together here are magic.
|Message||I was about 10 yrs old when Xanadu was released. I fell in love with the movie and with Olivia Newton-john. She became my idol ever since. Wanted to say Thankyou for making my life back then worth living. I love you!!!|
