Enchanted Cinema presents DIRTY DANCING
Friday 21st May 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm£19.13
Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor, Johnny Castle.
Baby (Jennifer Grey) is one listless summer away from the Peace Corps. Hoping to enjoy her youth while it lasts, she’s disappointed when her summer plans deposit her at a sleepy resort in the Catskills with her parents. Her luck turns around, however, when the resort’s dance instructor, Johnny (Patrick Swayze), enlists Baby as his new partner, and the two fall in love. Baby’s father forbids her from seeing Johnny, but she’s determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer.
“Endlessly quotable, strangely fascinating and immensely charming, there’s a reason that this retains an evergreen appeal. And it takes a hard heart not to grin at the final, euphoric dance number” Caroline Westbrook – Empire.
Enchanted Cinema is back for its 7th-year of inner-city cinematic magic. We return this year to one of our favourite venues, The Gonville Hotel’s magical gardens. Just off Parkers Piece, our installation garden screen has moved to the rear hidden garden of the Gonville hotel, with beautiful intimacy, and we will be collaborating further with the hotel to offer a one of a kind experience with outdoor (and undercover) drinks and food in an upmarket setting. Come along to a private, enchanting cinema area just for our customers, where you will experience live music ahead of the screening.
Seating is not allocated so be sure to arrive in advance to choose your deckchair. We are a rain or shine event so if the Great British weather surprises us and the skies open, the show will go on!
Sit back in a deckchair, fresh popcorn and a drink in hand, and experience cinema as you never have before this summer…
