Dirty Dancing
(USA, 1987, 100 minutes)
Wednesday, July 18

Happy 25th Anniversary, Dirty Dancing! Highly quotable with an addictive soundtrack, Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey ignite the screen in this timeless coming-of-age classic set in a 1960s Jewish Catskills resort. There is a reason that this is a favorite film for everyone - it tells a really good story, and it does it in a way that lends itself to repeat viewing. Don’t be afraid to sing along. You know you want to. Directed by Emile Ardolino.
