SummerScreen: Dirty Dancing
Nobody puts Baby in the corner
Calling all you hipsters out there – bring your most scrumptious, organic food and eco-picnic blankets out to McCarren Park for a night at the movies. The popular outdoor screening series kicked off in 2006 and its location has been deemed by Rolling Stone magazine as "the coolest venue in the country." Pretty much making Wednesday nights cooler than cool. Tonight’s offering on the big screen is everyone's favorite dance-based dating drama, Dirty Dancing. When Frances "Baby" Houseman goes to Kellerman's holiday resort, little does she know she'll have the time of her life (pun intended). This is one of the most iconic stories of modern-day cinema, with Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze delivering memorable performances which you are willing to watch again and again and again. "Jubilant and light-footed." – Time Out "This '80s classic transcends cynicism to give warm-fuzzies the world over." – Total Film Rating: PG-13. Runtime: 1 hour 40 minutes. The movie screening starts at sundown. This event is free and entry is on a first come first served basis, so it can't be guaranteed.
