Reply to "Area"

One of my most prized books is called "Wild Style" from 1984 or 1985. It's all about the avant-garde looks in NYC at the time, and the last chapter is "Nite Only" about Area. The book describes Area as "the hottest club in NYC" and describes the door policy (men with hats are good, girls with rags in their hair are good, Farrah Fawcett hair is not good). There are a few pictures of people at Area, and I remember that I wanted to grow up and be like those people (I was about 12 when I got the book). It's too bad that people don't get dressed up like that anymore. Most people come to NYC and don't try to reinvent themselves I guess. They wear the same A&F-model-wannabe clothes that they wore wherever they're from when they go out. This is a dumb question, but what's the movie about Area that this string was started with? I'd love to see it.

You're too old, you're somebody's mom, that outfit you wearin' is not the bomb.
