The Best Movies About Roller Skating

Roller skating is a constant learning process. You’re always learning something new, trying something different or conquering a new fear. But sometimes, you just need to shut your brain off and bask in the glory of roller skating goodness that is the 70s. Not all of these films take place in the 70s, of course, but they do share the glitz, glamour, and grittiness that any good roller skating movie is bound to have. Kick your shoes off and reminisce in some of our favorite clips from the best roller movies around.

 

Xanadu (1980)

The best worst movie around. Plus, that soundtrack is pure gold.

 

 

Can’t Stop the Music (1980)

It seems like roller movies have this “so terrible it’s amazing” quality down pat — or maybe that was just the 80s.

 

 

Rollerball (1975)

James Caan stars as Jonathan E. in this Hunger Games-esque movie where the only form of entertainment is the violent game of rollerball.

 

 

Skatetown, U.S.A. (1979)

Patrick Swayze debuts in this film with an epic disco soundtrack and, much like his iconic “Dirty Dancing” character, tons of wonderfully choreographed dance scenes.

 

 

Whip It! (2009)

This derby movie gets mixed reviews — but we love it for its stronger plotline (if only on a minute scale) and derby match scenes. It’s a nice change of pace from the disco-heavy movies of the late 20th century.
