The dancefloor featured in the classic disco movie Saturday Night Fever, starring John Travolta, is set to fetch as much as $300,000 at auction next month, reports CNN.

With its flashing colorful lights, the dancefloor provided the perfect backdrop for John Travolta’s character, Tony Manero, to flaunt his now-iconic groovy dance moves in his white shirt.

Now, almost 50 years later, it is the star lot in the “Hollywood Legends” sale, to be held by Julien’s Auctions on June 12-15 in Los Angeles and online.

The dancefloor measures more than 24 feet long and 16 feet wide (around 7 meters by 5 meters), and features 288 lightbulbs to create the flashing patterns, Julien’s Auctions said in its listing.

It was made for the movie and fitted at the 2001 Odyssey Disco in Brooklyn, New York, where many of the scenes were set and filmed. After filming wrapped, the dancefloor stayed at the club until it closed down, when it was bought by an employee. 

Other lots for sale at the auction include one of the Ark of the Covenant props used in the first Indiana Jones movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Meanwhile, Jeff Bridges’ bowling costume, which he wears in the final three scenes of The Big Lebowski, could sell for $200,000.
