Fourth Friday Flix: Dirty Dancing (1987)

  • eureka theater 612 F Street Eureka, California 95501 United States (map)

Sheltered girl meets a bad boy from the wrong side of the Catskills resort and is pulled into a whirlwind of romance and dance montages culminating in the annual end-of-season show. Who hasn't been there?

Revisit the 1987 version of 1963 with a pompadoured Patrick Swayze as Johnny Castle, rolling up his short sleeves to teach Baby Houseman (Jennifer Grey) to mambo and cha-cha. Swivel like Swayze to the iconic soundtrack that zigzags between decades and launched a thousand awkward proms.

Can these two crazy kids from different worlds make it work? Will her dad (Jerry Orbach!) find out? Will they ever perfect that lift? And who puts Baby in the corner? Nobody.
