Celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the movie that put the dirty back into dancing with a free outdoor screening of DIRTY DANCING at Tucson JCC! Get ready to have the time of your life with Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze as they dance and romance their way through an unforgettable summer in the Catskills! This under-the-stars screening will have you going Crazy for Swayze, and we guarantee that absolutely no one will be put in a corner!
It’s Summer, 1963. When Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) travels to the Catskills with her family, it feels like she’s got a pretty dull summer vacation ahead of her. But there’s nothing dull about Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), a local dance instructor who moves like no one Baby’s ever seen before. Despite her family’s objections to Baby “mixing with the hired help,” Baby just can’t help herself, and once she and Johnny start dirty dancing together, a spark is ignited that leads to one of the greatest movie romances of all-time! (Dir. by Emile Ardolino, 1987, USA, 100 mins., Rated PG-13)
