Have the time of your life watching the 80s classic Dirty Dancing back on the big screen, under the stars in the beautiful gardens of The Gonville Hotel.
Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor, Johnny Castle. Before the screening, there will be live music by some of the best local musicians in Cambridge getting you into the mood for the night ahead.
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.
Getting you in the mood before the screening will be live music by some of the best local musicians in Cambridge. In addition, the incredible Chihuahuas will be serving up delicious modern Mexican street food and our brand new bar, BrewBoard will be serving their stunning craft beer, so keep your picnics at home.
Sit back in a deckchair, fresh popcorn and a drink in hand, and experience cinema as you never have before this summer…
