Everyone we saw at Barbarella's Saturday New Wave Night in downtown Orlando

Mainstay downtown Orlando nightclub Barbarella is leaving downtown Orlando after 34 years within the next month. In honor of this milestone, we sent photographer Jim Leatherman out to document the club's signature 1980s New Wave Night for posterity. You can read all about the past, present and future of Barbarella in this week's cover story The Last Dance? out now.
