Dirty Dancing Part of the Summer Fridays
“Nobody puts Baby in a corner”
Kick off Gorton’s Summer Fridays series with this classic summer romance…you’ll be dancing along with us!
THE FILM SERIES AT GORTON PRESENTS:
A teenage girl learns about love, adult responsibility, and how to do The Dirty Boogie in this romantic drama. In 1963, “Baby” Houseman is a 17-year-old spending the summer with her family at a resort hotel in the Catskills. Struck by handsome Johnny Castle, a dancer in the resort’s floor show, Baby falls head over heels in love, wanting to be near him. When Johnny’s dance partner, Penny is unable to dance, Baby volunteers to learn her steps and take her place; however, Baby’s father, Dr. Jake Houseman, will have none of it, convinced that Johnny is a low life and that his daughter is too young to understand her own feelings.
Dirty Dancing won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life”.
Directed by Emile Ardolino
