Dance Classic ‘Flashdance’ Due on 4K Ultra HD April 11 for Its 40th Anniversary
February 15, 2023
Director Adrian Lyne’s 1983 dance classic Flashdance will be released on 4K Ultra HD April 11 for its 40th anniversary from Paramount Home Entertainment.
Newly remastered and approved by Lyne, the film is available on 4K Ultra HD for the first time, and the release also includes the remastered film on Blu-ray, as well as access to a digital copy of the film and legacy bonus content.
Originally released on April 15, 1983, Flashdance was the third-highest-grossing film of that year in the United States — as well as a pop culture sensation. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards, and Irene Cara won for her iconic song “Flashdance … What a Feeling.”
Flashdance stars Jennifer Beals as Alex — a fiercely determined 18-year-old with one all-consuming dream to study at the Pittsburgh Conservatory of Dance. Working during the day as a welder and at night as an exotic dancer, she bravely pursues her dream and undertakes an unforgettable journey that reveals the power of her convictions.
