Go Back for a Big Screen "Dirty Dancing" Revival

Go Back for a Big Screen "Dirty Dancing" Revival

Before "La La Land," a conservative town's ban on dancing stirred viewers back in 1987.

Rich girl Jennifer Grey (Ferris Bueller’s sister) finds herself attracted to a working-class dance instructor (Patrick Swayze).  Primarily known for tough-guy roles, Swayze’s experience with the Joffrey Ballet (who knew?) prepared him for the part.

Although the town's ban on deep dipping feet moving may sound a little "square" , now, the sudden swing toward strong conservative perspectives provides new relevance of this swing and sway musical romance.

"Dirty Dancing" joins the Flashback lineup on March 12 and 15 @ 3:30 and 7 p.m. at select Marquee Cinema locations.

The film won a Golden Globe for Best Musical and an Oscar for the song, "I've Had The Time of My Life."
