Saturday Night Fever's legacy is Stayin' Alive as the iconic disco dancefloor goes up for auction later this year.

Dubbed 'Hollywood’s most famous dancefloor of all time,' the dancefloor is the one danced on by John Travolta, who played Tony Manero in the 1977 culture-defining film.

The dancefloor measures more than 24 feet long and 16 feet wide (around 7x5 meters), and features 288 lightbulbs to create the flashing patterns, Julien’s Auctions said in its listing.

"Both the original acrylic panels and the modern production-made panels feature wear from use, the dance floor and components are housed within three rolling production carts, two crates, and one road case."

It is estimated to sell for between $200,000 - $300,000 ($326,520 - $489,780NZD).

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.

It was used to test shots for the film with cut-out figures representing the actors next to it, and is expected to sell for up to $70,000 (114,282NZD), the auction house said in its listing.
