With the return of John Travolta this week to Bensonhurst’s Lenny’s Pizza, it seemed a perfect time to look back on the debut of his iconic film, “Saturday Night Fever,” which opened in 1977.

In this photo from the files of this newspaper, a crowd waits outside the Alpine Theater in Bay Ridge on a snowy evening, umbrellas open; parked across the street, a car that epitomized the era. The other feature screened at the Alpine that evening was “Telefon” with Charles Bronson.
